How “Not” To Think Like A Missionary

  1. Have the attitude, “I’ll let someone else go.”
  2. Stop believing that the task of missions is urgent.
  3. Conclude that the suffering involved in missions is not worth it.
  4. Tell yourself, “I’m inadequate to serve the Lord in this way.”
  5. Believe the lie that all those who perish apart from believing in the gospel, will be ok in the end.
  6. Think that “lifestyle evangelism” is enough and that you will never have to open your mouth.
  7. Be any less than totally reliant on the power of the Holy Spirit.
  8. Believe that because you went on a mission’s trip that you are not required to “go” across the street to your neighbor who doesn’t know Jesus.
  9. Stop believing that God has “many in this city who are my people” (Acts 18:10).
  10. Think that missions is only for crazy, radical, sold-out for Jesus kind of people who go overseas and have to learn a new language.
