As followers of Christ, we are called to make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19-20). In a lot of our church experiences, however, we’re used to inviting our friends to church so that the pastor can tell them about Jesus, not us. Yet, this isn’t the job of the pastor—it’s the mission of every follower of Jesus.
We all spend our weeks in different mission fields: our neighborhoods, schools, offices, gyms, coffee shops, and more, so we come together on Sundays and pray for each other to stir one another up for boldness. While we can be sure that persecution will come as we share the gospel (2 Tim. 3:12-13), we can stand firm together in one faith (Phil. 1:27-30). (cited: wearechurch.com)
