  1. Are you willing to deal with any prejudices you might have against Muslims?
  2. Do you love Muslims? Are you willing to spend time with them and grow in love with them?
  3. In the same way Paul became like those he was trying to reach, ar you willing to sacrifice your own culture in order to live amount Muslims? 
  4. Are you willing to sacrifice the ways of sharing the good news that are comfortable to you but unhelpful for Muslims in order to share in ways that help Muslims understand? 
  5. Are you willing to be challenged with new ways of thinking and doing ministry?
  6. Are you willing to work towards house groups in Muslim contexts, instead of bringing Muslims to church?
  7. Are you willing to consider using the Quran sometimes, if that will help bridge your friends understanding Jesus?
