One of the reasons I love the book of Ephesians is because of how it calls us to live for more than the ordinary life we often settle for. This is true of our personal lives, in our families, and how we interact within the church. God has so much more in store for us – blessings, opportunities, growth, and a purpose so compelling that our brothers and sisters down through the ages have given up their lives for it.

About the Book

As a pastor, I have sat across from countless individuals – in my living or at Starbucks – and listened as they shared their longing to live for something more than what they were currently experiencing. The doldrums of life had sucked all the enthusiasm out of them. By coming to me, they were hoping I could wave a magic wand and suddenly fill them with inspiration and purpose.

If I were to ask those individuals to sum up their current existence in one word, I imagine they might have said …

– Boring
– Routine
– Dull
– Overwhelmed
– Drifting
– Meaningless

No one sets out in life to live like this. None of us ever had a morning where we woke up and our first thought was, “I hope today is a mediocre day.” Yet, somehow, somewhere, that is the direction our life swung in.

Ironically (or unfortunately), many of the individuals I’ve met with considered themselves Christians. They were people who claimed to have had a life-changing experience with Jesus. From Scripture, I believed these same people had been filled with the Holy Spirit, our counselor, teacher, and guide.

About the Author
Ken Hensley

Ken Hensley was born and raised in Peoria, IL, and did his undergraduate work at Freed-Hardeman University and graduate work at Bethel Theological Seminary.

Ken has led churches in several of America's finest cities - San Diego, San Francisco, Atlanta, and now Denver.

In 1999, Ken entered the dot com world and co-founded a business that enabled non-profits to make better use of emerging technologies. During this same time, he also worked in the pre-launch days at Christianity.com - when the coffee and donuts were free and foosball breaks were required.

In 2005, Ken was hired by Stadia: New Church Strategies to return to San Diego and start LifePoint Christian Church. During his time at LifePoint Ken had the pleasure of seeing people who were disconnected from God find their way back to him. Ken also had the privilege of partnering with other new churches to reach San Diego and beyond.

The Hensleys now live in Denver, where Ken is the Senior Pastor at Mountainview Christian Church in Highlands Ranch. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Church Planters of the Rockies, an organization that starts new churches along the Front Range of Colorado.
