Mark tells us in 3:14 that “He (Jesus) appointed twelve-designating them apostles-that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.
This weekend in Mark 6:6-13 we see the twelve being “sent” for the first time. In like manner, we the Church, the people of God, are sent into the world around us as ministers of reconciliation. What an honor to co-labor with Jesus on behalf of a lost world, trusting him to work through us to bring many to him for salvation.
And even as John the Baptist loses his life after faithful years of service we have the hope of resurrection always before us.
