Last week we saw that through the gospels Jesus showed us that a life of humility, of death to sin brings something beautiful, which was fully realised by the cross. We now see how this new found life through the Holy, brings the presence of God out of the church into everyday life. We see how God takes ordinary people and through the empowering of the Holy spirit creates History makers.
This means we are on mission and that the purpose of gathering is not just fellowship. Fellowship is good, but fellowship without purpose is just self gratifying, with little impact. However, if we gather because we need each other to to keep our focus on making disciples, then thats a real reason to gather. God has told us to discover what it means to follow Jesus and invite others on the journey. That means we need to be out there telling people about Jesus and then invite others to come into the church.
