Seth Barnes, founder of Adventures in Missions, explains in his book how kingdom journeys are a largely underutilized spiritual discipline akin to fasting, worship, and service Each of us is on a lifelong journey of knowing, loving, and serving God Barnes uses anecdotes and Biblical examples to show that sometimes it takes a physical journey to complete a spiritual one.Jesus took his disciples on a physical journey After discipling them into maturity, he sent them out on the first short term mission trips They were instructed not to take food, money, or supplies and were forced to trust God completely to meet their needs They were also given the power to drive out demons and heal in Jesus name When we embark on a similar kingdom journey, we encounter challenges that enable us to discover new truths about God, the world, and ourselves It is a chance to break free from the ordinary and to examine our identity When we are away from distractions, we learn to focus on the present and depend on God to meet our needs In addition, being removed from our cultural comforts helps us examine our prejudices and ignorances In Barnes words, we must allow God to heal what is sick and poor inside us then he will use us to reach the sick and poor in the world As a result, our faith grows.According to Barnes, there are three stages of a kingdom journey AKA How to Change the World Abandonment We must first leave behind home, family, friends, job, security, and comfort We are choosing to give up control of our lives to God.Brokenness Personally seeing the needs of the world will break our hearts We take some of the world s pain on ourselves because we are no longer ignorant of it.Dependence As our weaknesses are revealed, we become aware of areas of our lives that we need to give over to God Self knowledge drives us to dependence on him We usually return to dependence on God when we have no other choice, but what can it look like to live in a state of continual dependence and trust instead of spiritual entropy Barnes points out that it is important to avoid the danger of a spiritual vacation instead of a Jesus centered kingdom journey Different from quitting or escaping, the goal of a kingdom journey is to surrender even completely to God s will for our lives, seeking that he would use us to reach others It is important to analyze why we are going, what we will be doing when we are there, and how our and others lives will be changed The central focus of a kingdom journey is on expanding God s reign in the world and in our own hearts.Barnes has made it his life work to awaken a generation to understand that they can make a difference in the kingdom and grab hold of the abundant life Jesus offers us when we follow him wholeheartedly He believes that kingdom journeys can show us our calling, as he has seen many World Racers go on to establish ministries, enter full time missions, and commit their lives to making disciples.
