The goal of church must be to present everyone fully mature in Christ. Nothing more, nothing less.
This is possible because the mystery is disclosed. It is no longer a mystery.
In Colossians 1:24–2:5, the Apostle Paul tells that God’s mystery – kept hidden for ages but now disclosed – is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
To live the Jesus-centred life is life to the full. He made all things, all things are for him, he is the fullness of God, who sustains all things, and reconciles us to God. This one is in you, says Paul to the Christians in Colossae. The mystery is revealed.
Will you strenuously contend with God’s power to present everyone mature in Christ?
It’s so worth it! There is no greater privilege.
In Christ, Tory.
