One day Jesus called together his twelve disciples and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and to heal all diseases. Then he sent them out to tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
“One day”—a day on the calendar, Jesus will ask you to make a difference in your world. It may first come as a whisper or an impression that grows with time. Respond when he asks. He will give you the power to make deep changes in people’s lives.
Wait to receive power from him. Don’t run ahead, or you will run on your own power, wear yourself out, and come up short for the people you’re helping. This is one sure path to burnout.
Go when he says go.
Then when you go, don’t tell people about your ministry; tell them about God’s kingdom.
