The Master Teaches on Mission: Pt 5, The Response to His Mission

by Steve Reynolds  /  Matthew 10:34-42  /  October 23, 2016

Last week we saw that Jesus tells his disciples not to fear these men who will persecute them, but they must be obedient because they fear God (10:26-33). Today’s text is the end of this section. And in it we will see Jesus repeat the reality of the mission to his disciples that many people will reject Him, but we will also see that Jesus gives a little encouragement at the end of his teaching: some will receive the message. And I pray that we see from this sermon that all people will respond to Jesus, either they will reject Him or they will receive Him. And each of these leads to a result. Two choices, two results.
