Drawing from the Source represents the pattern God uses to interconnect His people to draw others in all centered around His life-giving Source.

“The wheels glittered like sun-kissed jewels. All four wheels looked exactly alike, each appearing to have another wheel inside it.” Ezekiel 1:16 (VOICE)

“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Psalm 133:1 (AMPC)

The hub at the center of the wheel is the Source – the Power, Holy Spirit – with the anointing lubricating the wheel as the “spokes” (people) come out from it, both connected to the Source and reaching out to others to connect them to it as well. One eye on God, one eye on world – looking for those who need a touch, who are ready to encounter a Love that changes everything.

Flowing from the center is the five-fold ministry. The Apostolic – reaching out, the Prophetic – Hearing God, words of wisdom blessing and grabbing the attention of those He desires to draw near, the Evangelist – taking new territory, the Pastor – cultivating caring loving community, and the Teacher – expounding on the Truth. Suddenly His word is coming alive! Living, breathing, moving through His people. Wheels within wheels. All interconnected, all drawing from God’s life-giving power, His Holy Spirit, His anointing – changing the world through His divinely orchestrated pattern. (This piece and its word is based on a word shared by John Kramer, Pastor of Gateway:61)
