Xplore: Welcoming the Nations Among Us is a 6-lesson study inviting believers to explore welcoming others for God’s glory. Welcoming is more than being friendly. It is the lifestyle of a person prioritizing God’s mission to “make disciples of all nations.” A welcomer gets involved with those around them from different cultures, developing genuine cross-cultural friendships, selflessly serving, and always being ready to share Jesus with others. Our Father has always been a welcomer and has a role for each of us to play in joining Him. Welcoming participants will explore:
The realities of migrants and near neighbors around them
Their own obstacles to reaching out cross-culturally
Practical steps they can take to start welcoming
How It’s Used: The Xplore: Welcoming the Nations Among Us study is suitable for any believer or group who wants to explore and obey God’s call to welcome. Designed for personal or small group study, large groups or one-on-one discipleship, it shines a light on the biblical basis for welcoming and challenges participants to look honestly at their own barriers to engaging cross-culturally. Practical and applicable, guiding students to craft a personalized welcomer plan and offering a Digging Deeper section for further individual study.
