What’s the task of a church? The church is a group of people who have made Jesus Lord. So they present themselves for service. What does Jesus want to do?
- He wants people to accept him as their rightful Lord and King.
- He wants people to grow to be like him. After all, God created us in his image!
- He wants people to show compassion to others. The world is full of hurting people.
- He wants people to fight for justice, to oppose the oppressor.
- He wants people to take care of the wonderful world he has entrusted to us.
As a church we don’t do all of these things. But they are aspirations.
