What is the purpose of the Church? And how does that purpose relate to your and my lives?Just as you and I might set out to design and build something - be it a meal, a writing project, a house, city or nation - we do best when we follow a plan. You and I are the designer and the builder.
And so it is with this world and the Church. Jesus said "I will build my church," with Him as Head, designer, builder and finisher.
And so, too, things work best when they're used according to their purpose.
We find our purpose in the Church and personally when we're aligned with the will and Word of God. Jesus left us a clear will and word for us, saying:
“And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’”
— Matthew 28:18-20 ESV
