“The Spirit of your Father will be speaking in you.”

Matthew 10:16-23

When Jesus sent his disciples out on a mission, he was very open with them about what to expect. He did not try to sugarcoat the difficulty, challenges, and persecutions that they would come up against.

So often, we don’t know what to do or how to reply when we face opposition, but Jesus reminds us that “the Spirit of your Father we’ll be speaking in you.” The one who has called us is the one who will give us the strength to carry out the mission. With God, all things are possible. How is Jesus encouraging us today to stand firm in the face of persecution and challenges?
