Our Great Calling

2 Corinthians 5:14-21 & Matthew 28:16-20

It is important for the church to be clear about the purpose for which we were reconciled to God. Is there something greater outside of our own salvation? Jesus gives that answer after His resurrection and it should give direction to our lives and ministry as well. He tells His disciples to make disciples.
