Purpose: 

  • To realize the bigger picture of the gospel
  • To enter into the full invitation of God to us

Note:

By and large we have been settling for a domesticated, watered-down, gospel message.  We have been busy building our ministries, our churches, and our influence, believing that if we just treat it like a business or an enterprise and do it well, that God will applaud our efforts.  I’m not so sure about this.  Rather than building anything of yours or mine we must apply our efforts and thinking to the Kingdom of God and his call upon our lives.
