Sending Out the Disciples

In today’s scripture, Jesus sends out his disciples into the places that he was about to go. Their mission?  To do what he had been doing among them. Heal the sick. Raise the dead. Make the lame walk. Restore sight to the blind. Afterwards, they were amazed at what they were able to do in Jesus’ name. In the same way, as Jesus’ followers, we are sent to do likewise. As we go, Jesus encourages us to look, ask, and then go…trusting that the God who sends is already on the ground working long before we arrive.
