Have you ever wondered what would happen in our community if the body of Christ really united and joined together for the overall spiritual benefit of our community? I have, and I have only been here for a little less than a year. I can just imagine what many of you who have been here significantly longer have thought and prayed about. When I talk about the body of Christ, I'm talking about every born again believer who has accepted Jesus Christ as his/her personal savior. When ! talk about uniting, I'm not talking about giving up our denominational (i.e. Baptist, Methodist, Charismatic) distinctives. But what I am talking about is focusing our goals and our purpose within our community on the one theological issue that none of us can debate against with any success. That being the lest-ness of humanity and the need for a savior as manifested in the person and work of Jesus Christ. When Jesus left this earth he left his disciples with the =Great Commission" (Matt. 28:18-20) which basically states that as God's people we are y... to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have com- manded you..." This is the primary purpose of the body of Christ, to share the gospel and lead the lost to Jesus. It's not about social concerns such as food banks, electric bills, and rent payments. Yes, these things are a part of the gospel message and ministry. They are vital to our community service, and must be supported. May I also add that as the newly elected president of the Cuba Ministerial Alliance, we have one of the finest ecumenically church supported social ministries that I have ever seen, and I've seen skid row in L.A.! I appreciate those churches, businesses, and the people in general who have supported this ministry, support this ministry, and will continue to support this ministry in the future. It cannot be done without your help and we are forever grateful. But the primary focus of the body of Christ is to Win the lost to Jesus. To do this takes all believers working together sharing this one common reality. The apostle Paul compared the Church to that of a physical body (1 Cor. 12:14 and following). He basically states that the foot cannot say to the hand I don't need you or the ear cannot say to the eye I don't need you but for the body to function properly, all must be working succinctly and doing their part. May I draw another close parallel? The Baptist cannot say to the Methodist I don't need you or the Lutheran cannot say to the Presbyterian I don't need you and neither can the Catholic say to the Charismatic I don't need you. If we're going to make headway in our community accomplishing the goal of bringing as many to Christ as we can before he returns, it's going to take all of us doing our part in fulfilling this "Great Commission." Have you ever wondered what would happen in our community if the whole body of Christ really united and got busy doing the Lord's work? As many people as possible coming to Christ. Wouldn't that be something?
