Discussion for Matthew 10

  • A disciple
    As we get ready in the morning to go to work, or whatever we have for the day we have to first have a set time of sitting at Jesus' feet and hearing His Word. We have to set in order an account of ourselves to God like David wrote in the 5th Psalm so that we have nothing evil or unclean in us and thereby mislead ourselves that we are walking with God, while in our hearts may reside things that makes us unfit for His Presence. In this we do open our hearts to receive the fullness of the Spirit to teach us and direct our ways and that, so we may indeed be in the open with others as we are in the Secret Place of the Most HIGH. Remember always, that the Dove came down and lighted upon the Lamb: NOT a tiger or any other kind of viscous beast! It is a very deep and powerful Word which is told us "LET this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.." It is a matter of our agreement with Him, that we walk like He walks, think like He thinks that we are of the Same Spirit and Faith of Jesus in God.

    When engaging in the ministry, we must be both cautious and wise. We must use discernment to know what to say and how to say it.
  • A disciple
    Hi Ann; Did you notice how that chapter 10 very closely resembles chapter 24, as well as what the Lord was telling the Apostles at the Last Supper in John 13-17? I think that tells us, that the Lord does not need to water down the truth just because we're new; but that He speaks the truth straight and direct. As we grow in grace and knowledge, and are able to understand more, He expounds more.
  • Anne
    In this chapter, Jesus prepares his disciples for Ministry to the Jews to teach them about the Kingdom of God.
  • BSP
    Verse 23: Jesus foresaw that many of his followers would be forced from their homes due to persecution. He advised ones to leave when things like that happened.
  • A disciple
    Jesus began to do and to teach, and to heal everyone who had need of healing; and then begins to charge His disciples to continue with the same work. In Matthew 5-7 was a similar thing, when Jesus began to teach about the character and nature of a disciple and now continues with what the disciples' work will be, and what kind life we should expect till He comes; just as He does at the Last Supper.
