EMPOWERING CHRISTIAN WOMEN: What's Your Greatest Mission Field? Blogger Widgets

What's Your Greatest Mission Field?

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

More often than not, people tend to think of the mission field as a far off place, in another country...a place where Christians are called to go and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. True, isn't it?

But what about our mission field at home?

As a parent, I believe we have a tremendous responsibility to teach our children about their living Savior, Jesus Christ. It is so important to take an active role in teaching our children about God's Word.

Impress them on your children.
Talk about them when you sit at home
and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.
Deuteronomy 6:7 NIV

The commandment is clear; parents are called by God to teach their children about Him. We have a mission field right in our own homes!

The question remains: "Are you actively engaging your children in discussion, stories and training in righteousness?"

If you are looking for some instruction, encouragement and resources to help you be the most effective witness to your child, please visit ' The Greatest Mission Trip You Will Ever Take'.

Come learn how to create a home for worship, why we should read the Bible to our children, as well as a whole host of resources to help you be an effective and loving missionary in your home.

Some of my favorites include:

and last but not least - Time to Conquer My Fear?

Let's all join together and purposely build a legacy that will expand God's Kingdom!

Continue to make God a BIG DEAL in your family and in your own life!

I totally agree that our homes are also a great mission field. Although I don't have children, I make every effort to teach my nieces about Jesus. I also think being a good neighbor and living out our Christian life in front of others is so important. If they know we care, they're more likely to listen. We need to walk our talk each day.

Karla, thanks so much for reviewing my site. You explained my passion for this ministry perfectly. And you happened to pick some of my favorite posts, too! I pray others will find it a blessing as they pursue living for the Lord as a family.

What a nice post about the mission field at home, Karla! It is so important to teach our children about God. My children are grown now, and hopefully I did my best at that when they are growing up. Now I'm blessed to have that opportunity with my grandchildren. Thanks for sharing this!
