KEY VERSEActs 18:23 (Paul’s life as a minister)
After spending some time in Antioch, Paul went back through Galatia and Phrygia, visiting and strengthening all the believers.

Be thankful for your church family and your brothers and sisters in Christ, but don’t expect to spend all your time with them. Get ready to go where people aren’t like you. I will lead you to serve people who are hurting and lost without me. I will take you to dangerous places where you won’t feel comfortable, but you will see my work. I will disrupt the ‘normal’ life everyone has in mind for you, but don’t worry, for my plans are better.

For you to have the kind of impact that changes lives for eternity, you must live what you believe. Trust me and take risks that build your faith. Are you willing to let me change your plans? Are you willing to let me disrupt your ordinary life to do extraordinary things? Be ready to respond when I invite you to join me on a journey that will change your life and impact others. Are you ready?

Ask God to prepare you to go to unexpected places so you can put your faith into action. Look for a mission trip your church or another church is planning and pray about going. Go where God leads you.
