God Sent the Apostles on a Mission
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 gave 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.
