S: Scripture-Write the ONE scripture that I feel God is using to speak to me in today’s reading:
Jesus told them “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me.”
He had first sent them out to go to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.” These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
Jesus gave the disciples the power to do things he could do like heal the sick, cleanse lepers and raise the dead.
I think of John 1 how all things were made through him so the power to do anything meaningful really comes from God, not from man.
Father God help me trust in you as I go out into the world. Teach me your ways and send me that I may proclaim your word to the lost that they may be found.
