“I [Jesus] have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16.33
Jesus told us that we will have challenges and struggles in this world. The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, the enemy prowls around like a roaring lion looking to devour, and we are in a dominion of darkness (John 10:10, 1 Peter 5:8, & Colossians 1:13).
Apart from the spiritual warfare and battles against Satan and his deceptive tactics, there are practical challenges that believers face in spreading the gospel and the sanctity of life message.
Church and Pastor Engagement
We when are engaged in a ministry effort, particularly in a nonprofit outside of a church, we are excited about what we are doing. We want everyone to be as excited and called as we are.
Reaching pastors and church members is a challenge whether it is just trying to get in the door to have a conversation or reach across the globe to find pastors in churches in different countries. There are other practical challenges as well that make spreading the message of the Sanctity of Life difficult. Learn More
We all talk about our children being the next generation, the future of the church, and the hope for the world. Satan is actively using every angle of worldly activities to distract and change the focus of what our youth see, experience, and believe.
According to LifeWay Research, over two-thirds of youth in the United States who grow up in the church, stop attending church at some point between the ages of 18-22. Globally, the trend is similar while being accompanied with having less access to church as well.
When youth own the truth within the Gospel and the Sanctity of Life message, they are more likely to be grounded in the faith. Reaching them is a challenge and getting them Biblical insights they believe relevant to their lives is another. Learn More.
