God loves all people groups and equips us to be his voice.  He teaches us the vocabulary of distant lands, the dialect of the discouraged neighbor, the vernacular of the lonely heart, and the idiom of the young student.  God outfits his followers to cross cultures and touch hearts. Pentecost makes this promise: if you are in Christ, God’s Spirit will speak through you.

Let God unshell you.  Galatians 6:4 says, “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that.  Discover your language. With whom do you feel most fluent?  For whom do you feel most compassion?  It’s amazing what happens when we get out of our shells.
