John 12:32 NIV: But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.
Behind every church ministry, within every program and planning group, there is a purpose. Right? At least that is generally our intention. For we do not do church ministries, programs and planning, for the sake of doing them. Sometimes, as we get caught up in the activity, it may at times seem to slip our minds as to the real reason behind it all. And yet, in a moment of stillness before God, as we come to the cross of Christ, we remember. There is a simple truth. Within all our activity there is truly but one goal—that Christ be lifted up. And with that a faith that He will draw others to himself.
