What is the Church? This is perhaps one of the most important questions of our day.
Welcome to the Transformed Podcast!
Today most Christians say, “Let’s go to Church!” at some point in the weekend.
However, as we will discover from this series of messages by Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Director of Eagles In Leadership, the church would better be explained as being:
“Disciples of Jesus Christ devoted to God’s heart and will focused on accomplishing His mission before He takes us to Heaven!”
In today’s podcast, we take up the first idea, that the Church of Jesus Christ is filled with men and women who have left all to follow Jesus.
These people are called disciples: disciplined followers of Jesus Christ who “obey everything Jesus has commanded them.”
Their passion in Christ; their purpose is to glorify Him through obedience; their plan is reproducing Christ in the lives of others; their pain is their strength; their praise is in eternity, “Well done!”
Now, let’s turn our attention to the words of Jesus from the Gospels as we start answering this very powerful and profound question: What is the Church?
Would you like to help spread the word by sharing this message? Perhaps you would you consider sharing this message with a friend? God longs to release the captives of our culture into the freedom of faith. Thank you for your consideration!
Have you heard about Dr. Smith’s newest book? If you want to make an impact in your community, county, country or continent, Dr. Smith has written a new book to help you accomplish your dreams!
Gathering Missional Leaders is a guided study that explores the elements necessary to build the habitat that will attract a strong and vibrant coalition of men and women who want to reach their world in their generation!
Gathering Missional Leaders was born as a field manual, a how-to guide to see local churches become training centers where people can learn to “go and make disciples of all nations,” and build a climate in their church where the next generation of mission-minded Christians can come together and thrive.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, we are praying you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
