I Am the Sender

Matthew 10:16 “I am sending you out like sheep surrounded by wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.

Jesus says He is sending us out. We are to go out to the unsaved. We are to be wise which means we should be sure to have the full armor of God (a previous post) on for protection and wisdom. At the same time we should be innocent as doves. Doves represent the Holy Spirit. They also represent peace. As we witness and testify we are to do it in a gentle, peaceful way. We must always be accepting of the person as we share the life God wants to give them. We are not to finger point or shame them. Jesus had compassion for the sinners. His anger was only against what the religious leaders were doing. Let us welcome all, respect all and encourage all to come to God through His Son, Jesus.
