The end all to spiritual maturity is the Great Commission. The overall purpose of the church is to get out of our air conditioned buildings and to go into the world to tell people about the good news of Jesus and to teach them to obey everything He has commanded. If all of our meetings do not funnel down to this, we have completely missed the mission and we should simply lock our church doors to never return again. Living beyond ourselves and discovering how God has designed us to go will carry us into the abundant life promised by Christ. We will never walk in this phenomenal power, as long as we remain comfortable sitting in our padded chairs.
