Spiritual-Mindedness And Evangelism

How to be spiritually-minded #17:

Realize that millions of people in the other religions of the world are not looking for people with more American cultural coolness or techno savvy. They are looking for a “holy man,” a “man of God.”

The question will not be, "Is he quick-witted and fast-talking and clever?" The question will be: "Does he pray a lot? Does he know his holy Book, much of it by heart? Is he self-denying and focused on God? Is he powerful in his weakness?"
This quote is from John Piper's latest Fresh Words article.

Pastor John shared these words at the Missions in the Main hall event - the capstone of Missions week at Bethlehem. It was a sweet reminder to fight to keep our minds set on things above, especially in our approach to misisons and the world.
