Give it some prayer and thought!

On my mind right now is Calvary Church and where we need to be focused. That is on “Making Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the World.” That’s the mission that God, not our Conference, or anyone else has stated that we must be about to be a Church of Jesus Christ.

Check it out at Matthew 28:18-20: “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’”

What that passage is saying is we are to GO to them, bring them to Jesus, and then teach them what it is all about to follow Jesus.

Unfortunately, too many of our churches have lost sight of our primary task. We must get back to the primary reason we are a Church. What is it going to take to achieve that? What is Calvary to be about in order to achieve our Mission as a Church. We call that Vision. Vision is an expression of how Calvary UMC, with who we are, where we are located, with the culture around us, with the people that are to be reached (and there are thousands), will focus on carrying out the Mission.

This is not optional! Unless we are about the Mission, we are not a Church, but a fellowship of religious people doing good things. Jesus’ words in Matthew 28:19 are not a request. They are a command. You and I have the choice of obedience or disobedience. I know what I will do! How about you?
