Google - Purpose

Years ago, almost 15 years ago in fact, I sat waiting for someone to unlock the building next to our church.  It had been a busy week.  While I waited, I decided to pray.  The Lord spoke a few short sentences.  I have never forgotten them.  These few short sentences continue to define my understanding of our spiritual mission in the world.  Here’s what He said:

“The clear purpose of the church is to know Christ.  To know Him is to be changed.  To be changed is to be a witness of Him in the earth.”

    Love always demands a declaration, a witness; His Word and Spirit are our witness of His love and we are the same in word and deed in the world. I wholeheartedly agree with your statement. Thank you for the simple, but profound encouragement in your post.
