You may wonder what has happened to the Church's influence in our society today. Why does Christ's Church appear weak and impotent? Scripture says that we are Christ's Church, His Body, and the lights and salt of the world. When we look at our world, communities, the local church, and even our lives, the Light of Christ has dimmed.
People are asking this question. Where is Christ's Church? Why have we not invaded the world and the churches with the glorious Light of Christ?
Could it be that we are more interested in everything (politics, legislative issues, profiting, our agenda) rather than proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, making disciples, taking on Christ's agenda as ours, and living righteous and holy lives? Could it be that we are worshipping things and people more than we worship God? Could be that we have neglected the ministry of the Holy Spirit? Could it be that we have forgotten our divine purpose and what we have been created for?
Our purpose is clear- we have a mission to fulfill- to turn this world upside down with the powerful gospel of Jesus Christ and usher in His Kingdom of grace, redemption, righteousness, love and justice.
This book identifies some of the hindrances that may have dimmed the light of the Church of Jesus Christ, and what we can do reverse these.
It is also my hope that this book will also remind us that we have been called to be Christ's Ambassadors, citizens of His Kingdom and government. We are His representatives who have been given a charge-to introduce others to the King of King and Lord of Lords, and then to equip them to do the same- for the purpose of expanding His Kingdom on earth.
