As Jesus sent out a group of His followers to preach, He provided them with specific instructions about what to say, how to behave, and how to respond when rejected. These missionaries were outnumbered and went out as “lambs among wolves”—yet they did so with the authority Christ had given them. Alistair Begg encourages us that while we too may encounter resistance or hostility in sharing the Gospel, our message of eternal life comes from the same heavenly authority.
4Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road.
