September 21, 2014 at Corinth Baptist Church, "The four purposes of John", Luke 1:17. God had a special calling even from the womb for John the Baptist. He would turn (through the Holy Spirit) people to the Lord their God. We as the body of Christ have that same responsibility to point people to the Cross. Although important, the Gospel is NOT feeding people, clothing people, and other physical ministries of the church. The Gospel is JESUS SAVES! We find this purpose proclaimed in the life of John as he prepared people for the coming of Jesus. Guess what? Jesus is coming back! Are you ready?
