An exhortation to the church of Jesus Christ based on the Gospel of Matthew. It tells who Jesus is, how He lived, what He did for the world, and what He expects from those of us who call ourselves pastors. In my opinion, our primary mission consists, t of building edifices of any kind but in reaching lost sinners with the gospel message and equipping our converts for ministries of their own.
