Christ commanded His church to take the Gospel to all nations, but many Christians living in North America feel disconnected from ministries and mission work. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. In a recent blog post, Wycliffe USA explored eight ways to engage with this calling to reach the nations.
Daysi Russell says many believers might hesitate to participate in ministry work because of the lies they believe.
“One of the biggest things is fear,” she says. “[People] are afraid they’re not qualified. They’re afraid they’re not good enough or worthy enough. I think that’s a lie of the enemy that keeps people from living out their calling.”
However, by being intentional and surrendering to God, Christians can avoid falling into this cycle of fear. In the article, Wycliffe outlines four disciplines and four practices to help believers engage in their calling to reach the nations.
The four disciplines – prayer, learning, simplicity, and community – help Christians live lives dedicated to Christ and therefore be willing and able to listen to His voice.
The four practices – mobilizing, sending, going, and welcoming – are all valuable ways the church is called to spread the Good News, though at some points in life people might be led to focus on one over the others.
