He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that He might fill all things.) And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the Truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: (Eph 4:10-15)
Are seeking Him and becoming more like Jesus Christ, or settin' on a pew? Are you growing up in the faith, or still 'shopping' and subject to deception? Are you standing strong on the Doctrines of the faith, or still blown about by every 'new' thing that comes along? IF you are one of His, grow up, get into His Word, hear His voice and obey. IF you are His, fellowship with His people, doing what He calls us to do, and going where He tells us to go. Those in Christ are new creatures, the old is passed away, and we are being made perfect, entire and complete, until He is through with us, and takes us Home to be with Him. IF you are not, ask yourself have you ever surrendered to Jesus Christ, repenting of your sIn, and trusting Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary for your Salvation. Are you truly born again?
The people of GOD are on mission to be the people of GOD to those without and to meet the needs of those around us as GOD provides and directs. As His ambassadors, we minister to those who are hurting and in need, both in the world and in our own fellowship. As His brothers and sisters and members one of another, we fellowship together as His family, and work together as His Body, loving one another and taking His Truth to this lost and dying world as we grow up in Him. As His disciples, we go and tell the Good News of Jesus Christ to every one, and as we go we share the Gospel so that those who hear, repent, and believe might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
