At Christmas we certainly should be most consumed with thinking about the gift of salvation that Christ has given us. But, that salvation is not something we sit on until we die. It changes us and gives our life meaning now.
We were dead in sin and had no ability to fulfill our purpose until Christ! But, the Great Commission calls us to a higher purpose. Now, we who are saved get to labor with Him to spread that salvation! This labor is an eternal mission that is truly worth living for (1 Corinthians 15:58)!
Over the next 5 weeks, we will break down Venture’s mission statement and show you how the gift of Christ is not only heaven. It is a mission worthy of His name that you get to be a part of. Its called the Great Commission and we word it this way:
Engage those far from God with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Know and Follow Him!
This Christmas season, we want to take time to focus in on the mission Christ has called every one of His followers to strive for. The Great Commission brings the greatest gift of all to those who need it most! And it’s why we exist as a church.
