If our greatest purpose as a Church is to love the Lord our God, which Jesus identified as the Greatest Commandment, then all we do with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength should be because of and for Him. If we all remember that, then ministry is no longer about pleasing ourselves, following our own agendas, or appeasing other people.

Why Love for God provides great motivation for doing ministry together in a coordinated way.

  1. Love for God provides motivation for us to follow His design for the Church which means coordination.
  1. Love for God motivates us to submit to the One He placed as Head of the Church (Eph. 1:22-23; 5:23).

Coordination lesson for leaders:

Keep people accountable to the big picture, to their greatest purpose, of doing what they do out of love for God. Emphasize this inward motivation over outward conformity and love for God should push them in the direction of being the Church of HIS design, not their personal desires.
