Imagine being a disciple and hearing Jesus’ call to go out and spread his message in unfamiliar places. The disciples responded to the invitation and readily preach repentance, drive out demons and cure the sick. Can I replicate Jesus’ mission and perform similar acts of service?

Now imagine you are on the other side of this story.  Picture the disciples visiting your home today. Do you welcome them and listen to what they have to say? Is your heart open to what comes from Jesus today? What is Jesus asking of you today?
