Maintianing “line of sight”: my responses to the questions

In a recent blog, “Maintaining “line of sight”, I raised some questions as to how we can establish and maintain a direct line of sight between what we do as disciples of Jesus Christ and achieving the purpose of the Body of Christ (the universal church). As promised, here are my very abbreviated answers to the three questions I raised:

1. What is the reason for existence or purpose of the Body of Christ? (the universal church)

As expressed in the Lord’s Prayer, the purpose of the Body of Christ is to bring heaven to earth. This is known as the Great Commission.

2. What is expected of all Christians? (disciples of Jesus Christ)

Along with the Great Commission, Jesus commanded us to love. Christian love is not emotional love, it is action. The anthesis of love is not hate, it’s apathy. Love requires forgiveness, as we are forgiven.

3. What specifically and uniquely am I called to do in my walk as a Christian?

Specifically, the Holy Spirit has given me the gifts of teaching and evangelization. So, I write, teach in a number for formats and evangelize by having every possible action shown the joy in my life is available to others through acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Shalom, Art

    And what a wonderful and effective teacher and evangelis you are, Brother Art. I do not fit that mold. God calls me to write allegorical poetry and to BE THERE and LISTEN and PRAY WITH all whom God sends my way. Shalom, Art!
