Matthew 10:1–4 (ESV)

The Twelve Apostles

10 And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.


When Jesus called the apostles, he went to them and called them, they did not come to him seeking to be called.  We did not get this information from today’s reading, but we see that he “called” twelve disciples “and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction.”  I wish I had that authority to heal every disease” because two people have died in the last two days.  I know that both had a strong faith in Jesus Christ.  I do have the authority to proclaim Jesus Christ and what he has done for me (and the world).  His life, death, and resurrection is our salvation, to those who believe.


I pray: O Lord, help me to keep my eyes focused on you and to share your Word.  Amen.
