“Don’t go among people who are not Jewish …” (Matthew 10:5). The time for reaching out to the Gentiles had not yet come. After Jesus’ resurrection, the Good News of His love and His salvation were to be taken to “the ends of the earth” (Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). This ministry was to be carried out in the power of the Holy Spirit – “The Spirit of your Father will be speaking through you” (Matthew 10:20). This was to continue after Jesus’ ascension (Acts 1:8; Acts 2:3). If we are to speak for the Lord, He must be our “Teacher” (Matthew 10:24). The Lord teaches us, and we are to teach others – “Teach and make disciples” (Matthew 28:18-20).
