The Gospel of Mark 6:7-13
Jesus has a unique way of training, developing, and maturing those who freely choose to follow Him. Consider the disciples. Initially, they simply watched Jesus serve. Then Jesus invited them to serve with Him. They were able to see up close how Jesus served. Before they knew it, Jesus was helping them serve—and soon He was watching them serve. Now it was time for them to serve without Him present. But before sending them out, Jesus gave them practical and applicable principles—principles we can apply as we follow and serve Jesus today.
