The Master Teaches on Mission: Pt 3, The Hardship of His Mission

by Steve Reynolds  /  Matthew 10:16-25  /  October 9 2016

We have been studying Jesus teaching on mission (9:35-10:42) and have seen the need (9:35-38) and that Jesus responded by sending (10:1-15) but, in 10:16-25, Jesus warned his disciples of the hardship (persecution) and instructed them in how to react. Today, I pray that we learn that missionaries of Jesus must expect persecution because He was persecuted.
