Preparing People For One Meeting

DaySpring realizes that every person will stand before the God of the universe and give an account. Christ, our high priest is the one mediator between God and men. We want every person to hear these words, “Well done good and faithful servant.” We desire every person to have a faith that is steadfast and true. The church (the body of Christ) is designed to help us with our growth in steadfastness and truth. Ephesians 4: 11-16 again shows us how that works. Our goal then is Isaiah 61:3, “To grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord that He may be glorified.”
