A long time ago, Jesus told his followers how people would recognize us. He said in John 13:35, “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” A little while after that, Jesus invited his followers to join him on a mission. He said in Matthew 28:19-20, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” So, if love is how people identify us, and connecting people to God is our mission, then our vision is clear…we exist to seek and save the lost.
