Then he summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness. The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon called Peter, and his brother Andrew; James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus; Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot who betrayed him.
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 10:1-7

Dear GMC, thank you for your reflection. It inspires me to pray about what it means to be a lost sheep.
I pray it is to meet God in my powerlessness, that place which is the sweet spot of surrender.
1-2-3, God loves thee!
At God’s cost.
Dear GMC, thank you for your response. Sometimes I have to remember that I don’t need to do much, and just be in the Lord. Thanks be to God.
