01/16 Matthew 10:5-6
Jesus sent out the twelve apostles with these instructions: “Don’t go to the Gentiles or the Samaritans, 6 but only to the people of Israel—God’s lost sheep. 7 Go and announce to them that the Kingdom of Heaven is near.
The Messiah has come. The children of Israel have been told. Now we have heard the Word of God-the Good News-God has intervened and it is our time to step forward and spread the Good News. Jesus is Lord. He is our only access to the Father. There is no other way.
