Matthew 10:1-32

Not one sparrow (What do they cost? Two for a penny?) can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t worry! You are more valuable to him than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31 TLB)

Jesus prepared His disciples for life on the road as spokesmen for God. In His name, the 12 had power to cast out demons, every sickness, and heal every disease. They had a message to preach.

Trust was a huge factor in their journey. In Matthew 10, Jesus advised His disciples:

  • don't focus on packing

  • to choose someone worthy to stay with and not to stay where not welcome

  • not to be stingy or be afraid of mortal man

  • be shrewd and innocent, to be alert in an evil world

  • not to go near Gentiles or Sanitarians

  • when (not if) arrested, don't worry about their defense, the Lord's spirit would help the men

  • if they diss God He would diss them, likewise, if the men regarded God, He would regard them

Lord, Prepare me for Your Godly mission. In the name of Jesus' I pray, Amen.
