Equip and Empower

Equip and Empower

Matthew records Jesus appointing and sending out twelve disciples as apostles (“messengers, sent ones”). He sent them out on a strategic mission to the people of Israel and gave them specific instructions for their mission. He knew who He was sending them to and the purpose He had for them to accomplish. Later, when He expanded their mission field to the whole world and they were further along in their development, He simply sent them with instructions to make disciples. Equip and empower your people with direction and instruction appropriate to their developmental level like Jesus did.

These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.”—Matthew 10:5-6

Prayer: Jesus, help me to equip and empower people like You did, so that they can be successful and accomplish their tasks. In Your name I pray, amen.
