The profession of law enforcement is synonymous with service. For Christians, the greatest example of service is in Jesus and his words and actions. Therefore, Christians in law enforcement must look towards Jesus and take strength from his example to fight against the immoral acts they encounter daily. Furthermore, a Christian called to work within the law enforcement profession can fulfill the Great Commission by positively impacting the outcasts, broken and deviants in society towards God’s Word. Despite law enforcement being a secular profession, Christians in law enforcement can exemplify Jesus’ standard of service which can be seen through examples such as Officer Tommy Norman and his style of community policing, intertwining love and duty.

Divided churches simply will not stand against the temptations of the sinful world, and connected relationships ensure the Church, with the strength of the Lord, can withstand trials. Additionally, Cottonwood Creek Church has ministries for both men and women, with a focus on mentor-mentee relationships. Understanding that trials can be difficult to overcome alone, Cottonwood matches mentors and mentees based on life experiences and current difficulties in order to create a welcoming environment that all feel comfortable in.

Since the all-powerful God put certain events and influences into Martin’s life to help him find the truth about Him, so God also places specific events and influences in His people’s lives to guide them in their search for truth and ultimately, guide them to
"It is a sure sign of American self-centeredness that we would take the suffering of millions of people and turn it into an issue that is all about us." Platt urged the believer to be sensitive to people 's needs across the world and be dedicated to helping them with the compassion of Christ. "Our God has not left the outcast and oppressed alone in a world of sin and suffering, he 's come to us and he 's conquered for us. Brothers and sisters, as followers of Christ, self is no longer our God, therefore safety is no longer our concern. We go and we preach the gospel, knowing that others ' lives are dependent on it," he
Not conforming to the modern events, and what society pressures us to believe. We cannot make Jesus into someone he is not, not making Jesus into a hippie, feminist, or superstar. To follow Jesus in America, we must love each and see Jesus for who he is to us. Following Jesus in America, where it is debated whether or not America is Christian or not, can be difficult based on the pressures of society, but also everyone will have their different beliefs/ways to follow

Even so, with all of this background work to be done and learned when entering a different culture missionaries need to hold on to the call that God placed on their lives. Anyone can go to a place and live there, but only through Christ can someone truly understand a different community and somehow transform a community into one that loves Christ. Kwast puts it like this “it is true that anyone can grow to appreciate various different cultures, and even communicate effectively in more than one, one can never rise above his own, or other cultures, to gain a truly supra-cultural perspective” (Kwast 397).
