God's Kingdom had drawn near with the coming of Jesus. He sent his disciples to prepare the people's hearts. The announcement of the Kingdom was not only urgent; it was also eternally important. Jesus' instructions were given to help the disciples know that importance. In our time when so few accept any standards for truth or morality, it is easy for us to lose our sense of urgency and importance about the Kingdom of God. Let's be open to the strong language Jesus used, especially in the following verses,  to shake us from our lethargy and remember that accepting Jesus' truth about God's Kingdom is eternally important.
Father, forgive my lethargy toward those whose lives are not yet yielded to the lordship of Jesus. Renew my passion to share your grace and to declare your Kingdom. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
