When God calls you to himself, he doesn’t leave behind the part of you that is career-oriented. If you are a gifted teacher, his call will probably involve you building his kingdom by using your ability to teach. If you’ve got a talent for building businesses, then God’s call may well send you to that arena.
 
Yes, we need more missionaries, even though most of you reading this are not going to ever be one in the sense of going overseas. 
 
Most missionaries are called to impact one of the seven realms of the kingdom – areas where they are naturally interested and gifted. We need more teachers who look like Jesus in the classroom. We need artists who work out their faith as they create their art. We need actors who can set an example in the cinema.
 
John Enlow describes the areas where believers can impact culture in this book.
  • Religion
  • Education
  • Entertainment/media
  • Government
  • Business
  • Family
  • Sports
The kingdom is coming around the world. The kingdom is coming in each realm as God’s people shine his light there. You don’t need to go to Africa to become a missionary. Missions begins as believers bring the kingdom in each of the seven realms.
 
Which of the seven realms most captivates you? What is God saying to do about it?
