This chapter is about getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. It is about letting ourselves be evangelized so that we can evangelize others. To be evangelized, we must allow ourselves to step out of our comfort zones. Only there can God’s grace be truly seen as an active force in our lives.
Why is it so important to be uncomfortable? Remember Jesus said to his disciples, “Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 5:10). We are called to take on a persecution mindset. Share our faith is personal and leaves us vulnerable for rejection. It is and never will be something that makes us feel uncomfortable.
Here are the nine challenges from the book that will lead you out of your comfort zone into a place where you can be evangelized.
