Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, "Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, 6 but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And proclaim as you go, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.' 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay. 9 Acquire no gold nor silver nor copper for your belts, 10 no bag for your journey, nor two tunics nor sandals nor a staff, for the laborer deserves
his food. 11 And whatever town or village you enter, find out who is worthy in it and stay there until you depart. 12 As you enter the house, greet it. 13 And if the house is worthy, let your peace come upon
it, but if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And if anyone will not receive you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet when you leave that house or town. 15 Truly, I say to you, it will be more bearable on the day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.
Jesus sent the twelve to specific people, the lost sheep of Israel. We know Jesus purpose is to reach the world, every people group on earth (Matthew 28:19-20), but He sent these men to a particular segment of the people in the world. In John 17:18,20 Jesus prayed, for the disciples with him and all those who would believe in Him in the future, that as the Father had sent Him into the world so He was sending them into the world. Each of us are sent by Jesus to a particular group of people to proclaim the good news and do the good works He prepared before hand for us to do (Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:10). Who is your group? Are you doing for them what Jesus sent you to do?
Jesus instructed the twelve concerning what they were to do. He gave them the power to do all He instructed them (Matthew 10:1) before He sent them out. Jesus has instructed us what we are to do among those He has sent us. He has given us the resources to do all He has instructed us to do (2 Peter 1:2-4; Ephesians 1:19-20; 3:20; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13-14).
Jesus provided a way for the twelve to be provided for materially without charging the people He sent them to reach with the good news and good works. Jesus provides for us to do the same. We don't charge people we seek to reach for Christ, we depend upon the Lord to provide what we need.
Are you doing what Jesus equipped you and sent you to do? Ask Him to help you and He will (1 John 5:14-15). If we each do our part the whole world will be reached.
