Spiritual Maturity Series Part 24

Many denominations are very content teaching and believing that the only relevance the church has in the earth is to preach salvation to the lost. Salvation is crucial and is an absolute given, but limiting the message of the cross to being nothing more than a fire escape from hell goes against the bulk of the teachings of Jesus. The mature in Christ keep progressing past their initial salvation experience.

God intends for His church to meet the needs of people, spirit, soul and body that they might see His goodness and be drawn to Him. If each of us would do that, the church would become very relevant in the world instead of often being the brunt of every joke in town.
