Now that we have established that there is absolute authority in the Scriptures (God’s Word), we could ask; what is God’s ultimate purpose in giving us His Word? How are we involved in this ultimate purpose? What part does the “church” play in fulfilling this ultimate purpose?
I want to answer these questions in the next few blogs as best I can. We must remember that in speaking or writing on a subject like this, we are touching what is infinite, yet we are very finite. I feel very small. As Paul said in Ephesians 3:8, “To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.”
Later in verse 10, Paul expands on this purpose by saying, “so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.” I doubt that many Christians have ever taken time to think about the impact of their role on the whole universe as they live out the wisdom of God. But it is clear that this is part of God’s purpose for us and the church. Please take time to consider how vital it is to understand our purpose in God’s plan for each of us. There will be more on this subject tomorrow.
