Do you have a missional lifestyle that stretches the boundaries other Christians?

Look at the disciple’s reaction to Jesus’ normal missional life…

His disciples came, and they were amazed that He had been speaking with a woman (John 4:27)

The disciples might have initially been put off by the radical nature of Jesus’ specific mission (to the Samaritan woman), but eventually, He would rub off on them…

  • Peter heals a woman (Acts 9:40)
  • Philip goes to Samaria (Acts 8:5)
  • Peter and John go to Samaria (Acts 8:14; Acts 15:3)
  • Paul initiates a woman named Lydia into a movement that would flood a Roman colony with revival (Acts 16:14)

Is there an outcast in your sphere of influence that would provoke other Christians to flee? Are we loving them radically?
