“I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.”
Luke 10: 1-9
It is a privilege to be given the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus and reach out to others, sharing the Word of God with them. Jesus has total confidence in us and he sends the Holy Spirit to help us in the mission. In our spiritual journey, it is normal for us to feel at times that in going out to others we like “lambs among wolves.”
This is why we need to pray so that Jesus can give us the confidence to know how to share with the hungry wolves who are searching for life and love. Jesus sends us out to share with others what we ourselves have experienced of Jesus. The Word of God is powerful and people who open their hearts, ears, and mind to listen can experience a conversion.
Are we willing to be the instruments that God uses to bring people closer to him? What do we have to offer people today? What can we offer to other people each day?
