Genesis 41:55-57,42:5-7,17-24, Psalm 33, Matthew 10:1-7

Loving desire to serve God

Jesus ‘summons’ or ‘calls’ his twelve disciples to action. Can you relate to being called for something special? Think of the call athletes receive to join a team. This was no vague invitation to volunteer, nor were they coerced – they were personally chosen. Jesus calls us to serve him in our daily lives. The apostles were ordinary people, something of a motley crew. You may feel ill-prepared to announce the kingdom of God, but it is not our ability that Jesus calls for, only our availability to the Spirit and loving desire to serve God.
