“You’ll need to recognize that you’re both a weak, broken individual who needs the grace of God as much as anyone, as well as a righteous, holy ambassador for Christ. You’ll need to serve God in freedom – secure in the approval He’s already lavished on you.” – Hershey and Weimer
Review: Kendall Berdinsky
This book changed a lot of things for me. It took me almost 3 months to get through, and sometimes I would only be able to read a page at a time before I would have to put it down to really let the words hit me.
This book is about missions. Don’t let that scare you off.
It discusses the hard things that need to be discussed, like how to find your calling, and help fund the finishing of the Great Commission.
The Finishers talks freely about the fact that young people today could be the generation to reach all the unreached people groups, and encourages those who can to go. While it does mobilize, it does not force, or deem it necessary for everyone to go on a mission to a 3rd-world country in order to serve Jesus.
Anyone and everyone who has ever considered missions as their calling, or is interested in learning more about it! This book is just the start for young people in missions, and has tons of resources in it that can help you.
