John 14:12

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.

There is a certain amount of romanticism that surrounds the thought of doing overseas missions. There are the exotic locations, the weird and diverse cultural experiences, and the way in which it seems like God is working overtime. But the truth is that God is working just as much right where you are in your seemingly boring town, job, home, or school.

While Jesus was on earth he performed crazy miracles of healing and even cast out demons. But what’s even crazier is that the Bible tells us that the same works that Jesus did, we can do, too. And not only that, but we’ll be able to do even greater things because we have the Holy Spirit. How can we continue to neglect and ignore this awesome power God has given us?

We need to stop believing that the only place God is working is in overseas missions or with someone else. Your mission begins right where you are. Step out in faith in small ways, such as praying for someone or serving a person in need. You’ll begin to notice, when you step out of your comfort zone, that God will use you in bigger and bigger ways and you’ll see God working, right where you are.

QUESTION 1. In what ways has God been evident in your everyday life?
QUESTION 2. In what ways will you step out in faith? Make a plan and then follow through.
CHALLENGE: Don’t wait for some great call to go do overseas missions; start serving God right where you are.
