Matthew 10:6-8: These twelve Jesus sent out withfollowing instructions: “Go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, proclaim the good news ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. You receive without payment, give without payment.”
We have been called by God, singled out by Jesus from a crowd of people. He commands us to go and do some pretty miraculous things, changing the lives of those we touch through the power of Jesus. Pray we can cast aside our fears of being labeled as different and bring hope to those who most desparately need it.
Do you find yourself faced with times where you think you have to do something you wouldn’t normally do or interact with other people who you don’t want to talk to? What if not doing because you don’t feel like it is deflecting Jesus’s command? Think of a time when you have done something for another and realized that this simple selfless act was rewarding.
