PART 1 OF “LIVE LIKE A MISSIONARY”
14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. (1 John 5:14-15, NIV)
MISSIONARY: Usually a person who moves to a distant location to invest his [her] life…
• Sharing the gospel.
• Strengthening church leaders.
• Meeting human needs.
• Contributing to the expansion of God’s kingdom.
God calls a FEW believers to be missionaries;
He assigns ALL believers missionary-like responsibilities.
MISSIONAL: A missional Christian understands God’s mission and shapes his or her life accordingly. Being missional is about PEOPLE, not PLACES.
FIVE ESSENTIAL PRAYERS FOR MISSIONAL EFFECTIVENESS:
