Jesus sent His apostles out on a short term mission trip. This was their assignment:
As you go, proclaim this message: “The kingdom of heaven has come near.” Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give. (Matthew 10:7-8)
This is our assignment as well. When Jesus gave the apostles the Great Commission, Jesus told them this:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-19)
Jesus told the apostles to each others to obey everything He told them. “Everything” would include the command to love your enemies, the above command to heal the sick, and the above great commission.
The news of Jesus is the greatest in the world. You’ve been tasked with an assignment with Heaven to share the good news of His Kingdom, accompanying it with healing the sick. Welcome to the adventure!
