Better to Be Away

After Jesus’ resurrection, he appeared to his followers about ten reported times. While it must have been hard for them to be apart from him, Jesus knew that in order for them to pick up the ministry he left behind, Jesus had to be away. That’s why he had said, “It is better for you that I go, than if I stayed.” Even so today, Jesus’ disciples train up other disciples to continue his ministry on earth. The question is...Who are we training up to do Jesus’ work?
