Lessons from Mark (1)

I worked several years for a company. During that time I learned many things about the company. When they hired new employees, it was my job to teach them about the company.
Our Bible Reading today talks about Jesus’ twelve apostles. These men worked and traveled with Jesus for three years. During that time Jesus taught them about God’s kingdom. Later eleven of these men helped start the first church in Jerusalem.
These verses tell us that Jesus sent out His apostles. They “talked to the people and told them to change their hearts and lives” (verse 12b). I shared about our company with new employees. In the same way, the apostles shared what they had learned about Jesus.
Are you sharing what you have learned about Jesus with others? God wants you to go into the world and tell the Good News about salvation. He will give you strength and always be with you.
