God Sent the Apostles on a Mission

 

Matthew 10:7-13

 

From the Navarre Bible commentary,

We know that “Jesus is training his twelve

Apostles for their mission, which” the Church

Continues until The Second Coming.

 

Jesus said that God’s Kingdom had come.

That was the message of the Apostles.

Jesus Christ performed many miracles.

The Apostles went forth and did likewise.

 

Christ was detached from material things.

The Apostles were to imitate Christ.

Jesus game them a sense of urgency

To give up worrying about their needs.

 

Jesus gave the Apostles the treasure

Of peace.  They gave peace when they were welcomed.
