    Today’s text is a continuation of Paul’s emphasis on the importance of the resurrection of Christ. The defeat of sin and the end of death, the wages of sin, is the core belief (agenda). The life, death and resurrection of Christ is the church’s central message. It makes possible the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven. As JD says, we get in trouble when we stray from this message. His questions are challenging, especially number three, “What distinguishes your local church from a social organization or a charity?“ Churches like a lot of other civic organizations do a lot of good in the community and provide a lot of services to religious consumers, but if we are not making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, we are missing the reason for Christ’s life, death and resurrection, and the core purpose of the Church, the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in Heaven. Lord let it be so with us!
