Most children learn the alphabet, and for good reason. These 26 letters, A through Z—a core set of building blocks—extend into almost every aspect of our lives.
The ABCs of frontier mission ministry can be complicated, as we interact with peoples representing diverse cultures, worldviews and religious traditions. And yet, it is precisely into this kind of complex and nuanced world that God sends His followers.
“Now the Lord said to Abram, ‘Go from your country… to the land that I will show you…and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.’” —Genesis 12:1-2
This devotional couples frontier mission with the alphabet of God’s grace, to share with you some of the ways that blessing is being embodied by everyday people just like you. Each day through Advent, a different letter of the alphabet will be paired with a word that is central to God’s work among frontier peoples worldwide.
Frontier Fellowship’s vision—for every people, an indigenous church; for every church, a mission vision— describes our two-fold conviction: God desires to be worshipped by all peoples through culturally unique expressions of faith, and the global Church is called to unity and participation in sharing the Good News with those who still have little or no access to that message.
Thank you for joining us this Advent season as we pursue this vision through prayer, reflection and action. May God use this devotional as a tool to draw you closer to Christ and introduce you to, or remind you of, some of the 2+ billion people still waiting to hear about Him.
