Colossians 1:28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
The ministry of the church and every godly leader could be summed up in this verse. Paul preached Jesus. He warned people about hell, about sin, about everything in their spiritual life. He concerned himself with teaching everyone all that he could of the Word of God. His goal was that all would be perfect or grow to maturity in Christ Jesus.
The most important thing we do in our church is take people from their lost condition to full maturity in Christ Jesus. Every service, every class, all the discipleship is to help people grow in Christ.
It is not enough just to get saved any more than it is enough to have a baby. We all want our children to grow and mature. We want them to become productive adults. We want them to become parents that can continue to carry the family forward.
In Christ we want all to be saved. We want them to grow in grace. We want them to become mature, reproducing Christians.
Are you growing in grace? Are you learning to serve God and enjoy your walk with Him? Are you actively pursuing Him? Are you helping others to grow? Are you sharing your life with others?
Vision does “life on life” discipleship. We share life together. We learn and grow so that God can use us!
I want to challenge you to get involved. I want to challenge you to serve God and learn to become all He has for you.
I want you to be serving others and helping them to grow.
This is not a mass producing ministry. It is one on one. It is one person loving another person and helping them grow in grace. Get involved.
