Jat Dhillon (Sikh traditions) in India

The Dhillon Jats of India's Punjab State are often called the Raja Jats due to the large number of kings, royalty and warriors in their history. Some believe the Dhillon Jats founded India's capital city, Delhi. There is a strong Christian presence in India's Punjab state where most members of the Dhillon Jats live.

Ministry Obstacles

Unfortunately, people with high status such as the Dhillon Jats are often the least open to the gospel message and least open to change. Christianity got its foothold in India by appealing to the backward castes who eagerly welcomed the gospel message. It gave them hope, but it also made the Dhillon Jats see the church as being for "lower status" peoples.

Outreach Ideas

Present Jesus Christ as the Bible presents Him—as the King of kings and the Lord of lords. There could be no higher calling than to become a co-heir with Jesus Christ and to live in Heaven with Him forever.

Scripture Focus

"Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded."  James 4:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray that God draws this people group to Himself. Pray that their hearts are purified and become completely devoted to Him.

Prayer Focus

Pray for Dhillon Jats to put their hope and identity in Christ rather than in their social standing. Pray for the Holy Spirit to send dreams and visions of Jesus, the King of kings, to the Dhillon Jats, calling them to be among His followers. Pray for a movement to Christ among the Dhillon Jats.
