I decided to review this book through Moody Publishers because one area I struggle with in my faith is in the area of every day missions. I fully believe that your every day life, your every word uttered on every platform you pursue is your “mission field”.
While I have no problem sharing my faith (as anyone who knows me can attest!) I don’t live a very INTENTIONAL life when it comes to reaching my every day mission field. As a gal with VERY diverse interests, I find that a large bulk, if not the majority of my friends, have drastically differing beliefs from mine. While I’m not out on some dastardly undertaking to convert my friend, I DO wonder and worry if I am doing everything that I can to be the best model of Christ to them.
So I figured this book would be an enlightening and edifying read!
About the Book
Book description from Amazon.com:
Surprise – whoever you are, you’re a missionary!
If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, God calls you his missionary. You may never go halfway around the world. You may not raise financial support. But because of God’s gospel work in you, you are on mission: to people in your work, school, neighborhood, and those in need. As everyday missionaries, God has sent us to live out his Great Commission in the ordinary, normal, all-too-busy, and even most mundane moments of our lives.
- But what exactly does an everyday missionary do?
- Where and when does this everyday mission happen?
Most importantly, how can you possibly share the gospel, without killing your relationships?!
