I have been reminded recently that Jesus sent them out with POWER and AUTHORITY but NO SECURITY because FAITH was all they needed to accomplish their calling. (See Luke 9:1-6
If they were rejected, and they were, they were to shake it off. It wasn’t a reflection on them but a realization of the hearts of those they were trying to love.
1. Share the Good News
2. Restore health to those who are hurting.
Pretty straight forward. What a loving act of service. There was no compromise in the message nor dilution of the healing salve.
As apprentices of Jesus, we have been called to share the Good News, not a watered down Gospel. The truth brings healing and sets people free. Our purpose is to bring healing and hope to those we encounter. There is no room for hate in the heart of a Jesus follower.
Some will reject the remedy. That is their choice. Nonetheless we are to carry on with no security but certainly under the power and authority of the One who empowers us through faith, for without it, it is impossible to please Him.
Lead with love and mercy and grace are sure to follow.
Keep the faith.
Carry on mighty warrior.
Carry the light into the ever present darkness.
Love will lead the way. His name is Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the light.
