“Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits” (Mark 6:7).
According to my Facebook memories, one year ago today, I had the pleasure of talking with two Mormon missionaries. The two couldn’t have been any more than maybe in their early twenties, but I’m a terrible judge of age. Although the missionaries did not win a convert in me that evening, what a wonderful time the three of us had talking about our love of our Savior Jesus Christ. We also talked a little about our beliefs about church and canon, but Jesus remained front and center of our conversation.
“Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits” (Mark 6:7). How brave of these young people to go from door to door not knowing what to expect; there’s a lesson to be learned from their example. Regardless of what any of us may think about the different churches and teachings, histories, etc., their willingness to obey Christ’s call, to go out into the unknown, is the real lesson we can all learn from this experience. “He [Jesus] said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation’” (Mark 16:15). Evangelism, in some form or the other, is every Christian’s highest calling. After all, the Body of Christ has such good news to share with the world! What are we waiting for?
