Recently at my church we have been looking at
22:34-40, John 13:34-35,
and Matthew 28:18-20. These verses are the life-blood in
the life of a servant. They are called: The Great Commandment, The New
Commandment, and The Great Commission. Our purpose as God’s body is to serve
God is the way He has called us to serve Him. You have purpose in Christ, and
the church has a purpose in Christ.
We must strive to become more like Jesus in our attitudes and behaviors.
The mission has not changed. But the approach to accomplishing that objective has changed. You are not the same person you were 10, 20, or more years ago. Our community is not the same as it was 10, 20, or more years ago. Time marches on yet, God’s plans are timeless. -His desire to fulfill His word is the same now as it has been from the beginning. He has given you everything you need in His Word.
God’s church must together strive, to find God’s purpose, so that we may be obedient to Him in fulfilling His call to serve Him, One another, and Our neighbors. You can make a difference, you must make a difference. God is counting on you to make a difference.
Let us focus on the race ahead of us, and be reminded of what we are called to do as believers. Amen?
