Considering the turmoil and societal unrest of the world around us, grasping and affirming the church’s calling and purpose is extremely important. Our calling is a calling from our God out of the world to Himself, for His glory. Of all the things that we may do to serve in this world; to minister to the needy, to comfort the sorrowful, to feed the hungry, pursue justice… of all the things that we may do to serve in this world, we must always keep at the forefront God’s calling to preach the gospel. Not just to “show” it, but to preach it. Considering that the gospel is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, it is foolish to believe that serving has any significant value if the gospel is neglected. “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” Mark 8:36
Each time we gather, we rehearse the gospel. That is the good news that not only delivers us from God’s wrath, but enables us to benefits of being children of God. The gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s provision for all things that pertain to life and godliness. May the gospel never get old to you as you worship in song, in prayer and in the study and preaching of God’s Word.
