audio icon Fulfilment of God's Purposes

In this on-going series of messages, we will examine what the Scriptures reveals about the goal of God's purposes and how He seeks to bring it about. We will consider the major issues and areas of life and how they are related to God's purposes so that we can have an integrated approach to life. The key word ‘mystery’ in Paul's epistles sheds much light on what is in God’s heart concerning His purposes. We will see that God’s earnest desire is for man to attain to a high degree of moral and spiritual stature. This is critical for man’s well-being, and is the basis for deep fellowship between God and men and among men. Together, as members of His body, we are to do our part in fulfilling God's purposes through the proper outworking of church life in the context of a fallen world and spiritual opposition. All this is possible only through Christ and what was accomplished at the Cross and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Central to the fulfilment of God's purposes is Christ and God's intentions for us in Christ.
