I didn’t learn about unreached people groups until 5 years ago when I took a missions class called perspectives. That class totally changed my view of the world and even gave me a different perspective where I was at. We are ALL called to go and be missionaries. We need to hurt for those who don’t know Jesus but our heart should especially break for those who don’t ever have the chance of hearing. The 10/40 window is where ⅔ of the worlds population is and where 70% of the unreached people groups are. My heart still breaks for that area and I am trying to do my part right here about educating people about that. Curtis also said an interesting thing “God has favorites and they are the last, the least, and the lost.” I know in Christianity we don’t like to talk about God having favorites. But God’s kingdom is an upside down kingdom. It doesn’t make sense from the world’s perspective.
Did you know out of every $100 given to the North American Church only $1 goes toward missions in the 10/40 window. Does where our money goes as a church reflect God’s heart? Did you know that only 1 out of every 10 missionaries go to unreached people groups? I am not saying missions in reached areas is bad. I just am saying if we understood that most people in these groups would be born, live, and die without ever hearing of Jesus our hearts should break. What if it was a relative or family member of yours? We are talking about eternity here. Too many times we are so busy worrying about our small kingdom that we don’t see God’s Kingdom.
Even if you are not going to the mission field position yourself as a missionary here, like Curtis talked about. Where are the non-christians? Where can you bridge the gap? Where are the hurting?
