Just as Jesus sent out the original twelve disciples, so also He sends us out. He generally told the disciples where to go, who to target with His message, and what to say. He empowered them for their mission and told them what to take, who to stay with, and who and what to watch out for. He warned them of the dangers they would face, reassured them that He would be with them on their journeys, and explained the risks, costs, and benefits of obediently following Him. He will do those things for us today too. Are we listening? Are we willing to pay the price for following Him? If we are obedient, God’s blessings will flow and the ultimate reward will be great. May we desire to be obedient to His call upon our lives. May we be His “sent” people. May we never wonder if He has a place for us in His mission to the lost people of this world.
