There are many churches that have become ineffective in their ministry as they have lost their vision and mission. But the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing. The main thing by God’s grace is to make disciples who make disciples for the glory of God. Our Mission is to make disciples. Our Motive is love. God’s chosen Method of disciplemaking is through the church. It’s time to get into the game.
We don’t need to fear our circumstances, our future or other people. Rather, we need to fear God and God alone with a reverential awe. His love and compassion for us will dispel our fears. We can know with certainty that He will hear our cries, lift us up, and open our eyes to see​ Him for all that He is to us.​
There are so many around us who just don’t realize what is at stake for them with regard to the moral decisions that they are making apart from God. How we respond to God is a matter of life and death. As God is in the process of saving us from the destructive power of sin through our faith in Christ, we need to do all that we can to help others know that He is our rescue.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
