Matthew 9:35-10:1, 5A, 6-8

While continuing to heal the people, Jesus is deeply moved by their innermost needs. They are like sheep without a shepherd or a harvest without workers to bring in the crops. It is time to send the disciples on his Father’s mission. Jesus commissions them and sends them out to minister to the needs of the people.

Just as you called and sent the disciples, you call and send me. I am excited to be part of your missionary work, Lord. Give me all I need to do your will.
