Scripture reveals God has a definite purpose and plan for His Church. The ultimate goal of His Church is not evangelizing, establishing, equipping or expanding, but it is to make known His wisdom to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places and for the earth to be filled with the knowledge of His glory (Ephesians 3:10, 21). Evangelizing, establishing, equipping or expanding are only God’s “means or way” to display His wisdom and glory. Therefore, we will see from Scripture that God’s ultimate purpose and goal is accomplished through His Church by preaching the gospel and revealing His plan to all nations or people groups, so that they will be glad and sing for joy (Psalm 67:3-4).
Numbers 14:21 – “All the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.”
Psalm 72:19 - “May the whole earth be filled with His glory.”
Isaiah 48:11 – “My glory I will not give to another.”
Habakkuk 2:14 – “The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord.”
1 Corinthians 10:31 – “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
2 Corinthians 3:18 – “We all beholding the glory of the Lord are being transformed…”
Ephesians 1:12, 14 – “We…might be to the praise of His glory.”
Colossians 1:27 – “God chose to make known the riches of the glory of this mystery…”
You and I are to live in such a way that God’s glory is seen through us by the world and universe.
