Jesus Christ is the focal point of all human existence and history (Eph 1:10; Col 1:16). Therefore, Jesus must be the supreme focus of our lives as Christians and our life together as a church (Col 1:18). The way we honor Christ and magnify His supreme Kingdom authority in our lives is by obedience to His Great Commission to preach the good news, make disciples, and plant churches among every tribe, tongue, and nation (Matt. 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Rev. 5:9, 7:9). The advance of the Kingdom of Christ through the redemption of his people from the kingdom of darkness is the message, the storyline, of the Scripture from beginning to end that gives missional purpose to our existence (Gen 3:15; Rev 11:15).
