One of the primary purposes of the assembly of disciples is to praise God and glorify Jesus, our Master.
I am a member of the body of the Messiah, the called out assembly of disciples.
I am to proclaim the stunning brilliance and beauty of God (aka glory).
I am to praise Him along with all the saints and believers of King Jesus.
I am to shout it out.
What a stunning God we serve!
Also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in the Messiah would be to the praise of His stunning brilliance and beauty (aka glory). | Ephesians 1:11–12
If the called out assembly of disciples (aka church) wants to make a difference in the world, it must be different from the world. Salt is different from the food it flavors. God has called the fellowship of disciples to be separate from sin, to embrace fellowship with other believers, and to be a light to the world.
God has graciously called us unto Himself:
“‘Come out from them and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you’” (2 Corinthians 6:17).
Collectively, as disciples, we are like living stones. We are being built up into a spiritual house for a holy and dedicated priesthood. We are to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus the Messiah.
