Although Jesus did miracles and ministry, that was not his ultimate purpose for coming to this world. He came to be the Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world. He came to set us free from our sins.
As we do ministry, we must never forget the mission, which is to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10). The purpose of ministry is to meet people at the felt need and lead them to their ultimate need for Christ and salvation.
We must never forget that we have been given the ministry of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 states, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (NASB).
We represent Christ to the world. As we have been made right with God by accepting the salvation that is available, we should lead others to the Christ so that they can be reconciled to God.
