The Mission of the Twelve
Imagine yourself being one of the twelve apostles. You've been walking with Jesus now for a little while as He was teaching you, and now He sends you out two by two on your very first preaching tour. Put yourself in their sandals. How would you feel? You are being sent out by Jesus Christ to go into unfamiliar places and circumstances to preach the Gospel, and I believe this passage has something to teach us as servants of Jesus Christ. Just as He had a mission for these twelve, He also has a mission for us.
