Matthew 10:5-8 NIVUK
5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: ‘Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. 7 As you go, proclaim this message: “The kingdom of heaven has come near.” 8 Heal those who are ill, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
What is our motive for this amazing task that we’ve been given? The last six words: ‘freely you have received; freely give’. What has God done for you, what have you received from him? Don’t just think in broad generalisations, think about specifics. When your list starts forming, you’ll realise how much.
Thank you Father for all your good gifts! Help me share your love in thanksgiving with others.
