After looking at the "harassed and helpless" crowd and calling for prayer, Jesus summons his disciples by name to go, show, and tell about the inbreaking kingdom of God. They become short-term missionaries with a simple strategy. Unfortunately, certain opposition will come, both within the family and from the government. However, Jesus reassures the Twelve that God has their back and His Spirit will provide the words when they give witness. This Missionary Discourse has relevant application today for followers of Jesus. We too should go public and not panic, knowing God's got our backs.
