When you follow Jesus

… you will also be sent.

“[Jesus] summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness.” — Matthew 10:1
“Jesus sent out these twelve after instructing them thus, ‘Do not go into pagan territory or enter a Samaritan town. Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’’” — Matthew 10:5-7

In a footnote of the version of the Bible that I am reading (the New American Bible), it says that the meaning of the word apostle is “one who is sent.”

But before they became apostles, they were first followers of Jesus.

Are you a follower of Jesus? Get ready to be sent.
