“The YES of the Kings' grace now allows humankind to respond with our own YES that accepts his invitation. When our own YES echoes God's YES, we join his kingdom and joyfully accept our role as the body of Christ in its kingdom mission. We live out this acceptance in both our individual and our corporate efforts to see kingdom justice brought to all.”
-- Kara Powell
As we live in awe of the King's grace, we can't help but want to serve him. This is how God intended it to be. He wants us to be so in love with Him that we only live for him. Every action we take is an action that is for Jesus.
So the question we have to ask ourselves, if God has given us grace and we have new life, then there must be something beyond this. God didn't come to earth and give grace just for the sake of showing his power. There is a reason behind why He did it.
The Great Commission is why we have received grace. We have been called to go into the world and share the love of Christ with others. When the Church is a movement, this is the only focus. It is not an organization concerned with casseroles and organ music, it is concerned about making disciples. That is the filter for a healthy church.
“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
