Some Christians do not see the need to reach them

In particular, I am thinking of the followers of Islam.

Many believe that Islam is just another way to get to heaven.  Others see only the differences, and feel polemic against Jesus as the Son of God.  They would like to fight back politically and with strong apologetics.

SIM (Serving in Mission) has a long history of evangelism among the followers of Islam.  Is any sacrifice too great when the result is seeing people called into the kingdom of God and discipled as sincere followers of Jesus Christ?

There are so many unreached Muslim people groups.  There are so few workers to go and tell them of Jesus. A lot of misunderstanding has come out of insensitive approaches.  Our approach should show our love and respect.

So we come with the gospel and bring with us doctors and nurses that treat the sick in hospitals far away from any convenient urban centre.  Specialist in agriculture, water development, or animal husbandry help Muslim villages and nomadic tribes with their basic needs.  In the cities we help the poor with micro enterprises, feeding projects, orphanages, outreach to street children, HIV and AIDS ministries, and social work.  This all goes hand in hand with telling the followers of Islam of the hope that is in us.  Social work provides the opportunity and the credibility necessary for effectively sharing the gospel.

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
