Missions

I came across something recently that made me stop and think.

And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:9-10)

Nothing can be more important than what the Son of God died to achieve. Reaching all the peoples of the world with the saving news of Christ's death and resurrection so that communities of believers can be established through faith in the Redeemer is the greatest work of the Church. 

Missions is not the ultimate goal of the Church, but it is the greatest work of the Church.

The ultimate goal of the Church is passion for the supremacy of God in the hearts of people from every tribe, language, people, and nation. The glory of God is the goal.

Personally, I tend to be more inwardly focused as opposed to outwardly focused.

But people cannot glorify God and be satisfied in Him if they don't know Him. 

So, evangelizing the unreached peoples of the world is the great work of the Church.

There can be no Christ-exalting anything without the knowledge of the exalted Christ.
