Mark 6:7-13

The Twelve have watched, listened, and learned. Now they are ready to be apostles, a Greek word meaning “ones sent out.” Jesus gives them very specific and detailed instructions, not the least of which is that they must be absolutely dependent on him.

You called me. I continue to listen and learn. You have sent me out, but I struggle with being dependent on you alone. I remind myself again and again, “It’s not my mission. It is yours.”
