New Testament Bible Meditation- January 20 - Text & Audio

Matthew 10:16-28 

"Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to councils, and in their synagogues they will scourge you. Yes, and you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, don't be anxious how or what you will say, for it will be given you in that hour what you will say.
For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
"Brother will deliver up brother to death, and the father his child. Children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death. You will be hated by all men for my name's sake, but he who endures to the end will be saved.
But when they persecute you in this city, flee into the next, for most assuredly I tell you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel, until the Son of Man has come.
"A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his lord.
It is enough for the disciple that he be like his teacher, and the servant like his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household!
Therefore don't be afraid of them, for there is nothing covered that will not be revealed; and hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in the ear, proclaim on the housetops. Don't be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.

Insight- Jesus wanted his disciples to be wise when they went out to do the work they had been called to do. He warned them of dangers and evil men, but also told them that the Holy Spirit will strengthen them of what to speak when brought before rulers. They were not to fear men who could kill only the body and not the soul.

Question- Have you been witnessing for Jesus lately?

Prayer- Dear Father in heaven, grant me heavenly wisdom while I deal with people of this world and witness about Jesus Christ. Let me live my earthly life with the fear of the Lord. In Jesus name. Amen.
