The Purposeful Mission of Christ (BLOG)

celebration%20worship%20photoChrist’s purpose was to “come down from heaven not to do My will but to do the will of Him who sent Me” (Jn 6:38); His mission, however, was “to seek and to save the lost” (Lk 19:10).

Similarly, the Church’s purpose is worship, to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’” (Lk 10:27).  And the Church’s mission is to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Mt 28:19-20a).

The Church will never accomplish its mission if she does not understand and practice her purpose.
