The Apostle Paul was compelled to live and preach the gospel as summarized in Philippians 1:21 “For me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” Today’s believers are called to this same level of holy service in the gospel. The biblical motivation of heaven enables believers to remain focused on outreach in light of the eternal destiny of the lost. Practical advice is given on how to manage the pain of life, stay the course and how ultimately to live for Christ.
Today’s guest speaker was Dr. Gregory Maine from Lakeland Evangelical Free Church in Gurnee, IL. Dr. Maine currently serves as an elder at Lakeland and is on the Oversight Committee of LifeSpring Community Church. He and Pastor Ashwill are partners in the gospel planting churches to win the world for Christ.

What is the purpose of our lives?
God wants to restore our relationship with Him and for us to take part in helping others to be restored. He wants us to live for eternity, not for our short time in this world. For this reason, He sent His son Jesus, that His mission would be our mission.

How can a holy God dwell with his unholy people? He pictured the solution by having Israel build a tent and he designated sacrifice there. The greatest sacrifice was the day of atonement when the high priest went into the most holy place with blood. But this can’t really cleanse a person’s conscience. Jesus entered the real holy place and sat down. He dealt fully with our sin problem and he invites his people to join him in his father’s presence.
