As Jesus sends the Twelve out on mission, he does so with the first-hand knowledge that their ministry will not always be well received. For those with open hearts and hearts ready to receive, blessing would abound. But for those who were offended by the offer of God’s love, their lack of faith would bear testimony against them.
Think about what, if anything, there is that stops you from seeing who Jesus really is. What helps you take a fresh look? Who or where has God called you to share the Good News? How’s it going? Don’t forget the advice Jesus gave, from our gospel lesson last week:
Do not fear, only believe. (Mark 5:36)
