7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
9 “Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts — 10 no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep. 11 Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave. 12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting. 13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. 14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet. 15 Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.
16 “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Be on your guard; you will be handed over to the local councils and be flogged in the synagogues. 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.Matthew 10:7-20 NIV
I watched an evening mid-week service, streamed on my computer and was so blessed! The Pastor reviewed so many things that have been heavy on my heart and I have shared here. We ARE here for such a time as this! We battle a Spirit of Fear – but God has given us Power, Love, and a Sound Mind. So many things!
While I watched I was making fabric masks – well, cutting out the patterns for 6 or so of them for my family. Newest law in the land, so to speak, is that no one can leave their house without a mask on.
I knew it was coming. It’s just that having worked in Hospitals, Nursing Homes and ARC’s, my background in infection control, IT IS JUST THAT…. Oh well, it doesn’t matter. As Daniel submitted to the laws of the land, so must I. So my disobedience to God’s suggestion that I make these sooner means little time for this. I am so sorry.
Read the above passage – Jesus said Go! The law of the land says stay home. But your computer and phone can reach the ends of the earth! So, go therefore! Go! (Don’t forget to wear those masks when you do Go!)
