Steph's Favorite episode: Episode 36 - The Biggest Lies of Life on Mission

God is doing things all around us and is inviting us to be on mission with Him on a daily basis in our everyday lives. There are, however, many lies we believe which hold us back from joining Him.   Jo and Steph discuss 10 lies about life on mission: 1. It is going to take a lot of extra time (which I don’t have!) 2. A life on mission is somewhere else, preferably abroad. 3. You have to be a professional missionary to be sent on mission 4. You have to have a certain personality type - one that is fearless and chatty! 5. You have to have professional training to do mission - until then I can’t do mission. 6. Assumption that real mission will be the exact opposite of anywhere you want to go and anything you want to do. 7. It’s all about what you say. 8. It’s all about what you do. You don’t need to say anything. 9. You have to go it alone! 10. You have to do it for God.   Discussion questions:   1) Read John 5:19.  Where is God already working in the lives of people around you? In which contexts is God inviting you to be on mission with Him in your every day life? 2) Are you an introvert or extrovert? How can you do mission within your personality type? Where are the challenge to embrace? 3) Who are your team? Who is praying with you about your mission opportunities?
