 God Does Amazing Things When We Trust and Obey, with Don Armstead – EM276 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 37:02

We all want to see God do amazing thing but sometimes the struggle is in remaining faithful and obedient in the various places God calls us. Listen as Don Armstead shares the stories of God’s spectacular faithfulness. From career transitions to allowing God to teach him to play music as a worship leader to navigating church transitions and more, Don has remained faithfully obedient. And through it all, God has shown His incredible providence. While the world would point to a path of personal gain and glory, Don has chosen to be obedient in the little things and because of that faithfulness, God has taken him to places he’d never have dreamed. Now, not only does he minister in a local church, he’s able to travel to the Philippines for months at a time, building relationships, ministering, and supporting the Church there with a vision that is expanding from glory to glory to glory.

 Redeeming Honor: How to Share the Good News in the Muslim World, with Audrey Frank – EM266 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 34:35

Understanding honor and shame is important in sharing the Gospel in Muslim communities. In the West, shame is seen as a feeling, but in many cultures, it’s a position within the community. For many of us, this can be hard to understand which is why Audrey Frank’s book, Covered Glory: The Face of Honor and Shame in the Muslim World, which focuses on the shame-honor paradigm, is so important. Audrey spent over twenty years in North Africa doing medical work. As she did ministry, she learned about shame-honor culture and how it affected sharing the Gospel. Now, she helps Westerners understand the importance of shame-honor culture and how we each can carry hidden shame in ourselves. Through the Good News, we can see that God removes our shame and honors us in His love. * Full Show Notes: https://engagingmissions.com/266* Audrey's Book: https://amzn.to/2GYExE2 Check out our sponsor:Love Never Fails InternationalPray today about whether you should be part of their upcoming missions trip to India and to make the Gospel known.

 The Unsaved Christian: Reaching Cultural Christianity with the Gospel, with Dean Inserra – EM264 | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 31:53

Many people think they are Christian but have never heard the Gospel. Dean Inserra joins the show to talk about “cultural Christianity” and how to reach these people with Jesus. In his new book, The Unsaved Christian, he talks about different forms of unsaved Christianity. These people are not just “baby Christians,” but of a separate religion all together. Check out our sponsor:Love Never Fails InternationalPray today about whether you should be part of their upcoming missions trip to India and to make the Gospel known. We have to make sure that we’re not advocating for a morality. We’re advocating for a worship, really, for a following of Christ. They’re two very different things.Dean Inserra * Full Show Notes: http://engagingmissions.com/264* Dean's Book: https://amzn.to/2O74jvW What We Talked About * 00:24 – Episode overview* 01:21 – Megavoice Audio Bibles* 02:29 – About the guest* 02:45 – What is your book about?* 03:43 – Centering the Gospel on Jesus* 05:13 – How to bridge the gap of cultural Christianity* 07:52 – Walking in the tension* 10:28 – Becoming aware of the gap* 12:11 – How can we make the Gospel clear?* 14:43 – Different forms of unsaved Christians* 19:22 – The problems of church membership* 21:16 – Approaching traditions to reach the lost* 23:50 – How can we engage in God’s work?* 26:35 – Avoiding the witch hunt* 27:57 – Final thoughts* 29:09 – How can we best pray for you?* 29:57 – Closing thoughts Resources & Contact Info * Dean’s Website: http://deaninserra.com/* Dean’s Book: https://amzn.to/2O74jvW Show Links * Facebook: @engagingmissions* Messenger: @engagingmissions* Twitter: @engagingmission* Leave a Voicemail* Become a Patron* Listen for Free
