Soundbites: What is the Task of the Church?

July 11, 2011

“When people look at the church, they should see the One who declared–in word and in deed to the leper, the lame, and the poor–that His kingdom is bringing healing to every speck of the universe.” (41)

“We are to embody Jesus Christ by doing what He did and what He continues to do through us: declare–using both words and deeds–that Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords who is bringing in a kingdom of righteousness, justice, and peace. And the church needs to do this where Jesus did it, among the blind, the lame, the sick and outcast, and the poor.” (42)
