TALK: Consider some of these ideas
“7 He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. “(Mark 6:7)
Despite the questions raised in his hometown, Jesus continues his teaching, and empowers his disciples to spread his mission throughout the countryside.
- The disciples were sent out without material gifts, but the powerful gift of Jesus’ authority. Do you feel equipped to share in that ministry?
- John the Baptist risked everything for his faith. We know that risking our lives is not wise, but do you risk anything for your faith? Why or why not? How could you be bolder?
PRAY: Lord God, Jesus persisted in his mission in the face of opposition, disbelief, and danger. Encourage us by his example when we encounter roadblocks, and give us the same Spirit which strengthened him. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
BLESS: May God protect you as live and grow in faith!
