‘He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits.’ Mark 6:7 (NRSV)
The disciples were given a clarion call to share about the Kingdom of God and take authority over unclean spirits. As a result, many heard the gospel and were healed of their infirmities. In Jesus name, the disciples were given authority to do good and as they stayed true to their call, good was done. They would have rejoiced seeing the fruit of their work as they remained faithful to their mission.
What has the Lord given us authority to do? What has he specifically called us to invest ourselves in? Seeing fruitful results from our appointed mission will mean saying no each day to a lot of other things, perhaps even good and commendable things. In a climate of distractions and diversions, we may be surprised how often we have to say no.
Let’s ask ourselves today, In Jesus name, I have been given authority to ……. I have a specific calling to……. The answer will look entirely different for each of us. The challenge is to remain true to that calling and honour the work well, so that God is glorified through it.
We are to be faithful stewards of the work God has entrusted to us. Let us approach his throne of grace confident that our Father will reveal what he wants us to do for him and give us the wisdom and strength to do it. And then like the disciples, we will see fruit that nourishes others and honours God when we stay true to our calling
