“Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. So be as shrewd as snakes and harmless as doves.”
“When you are arrested, don’t worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time. For it is not you who will be speaking – it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.”
“Students are not greater than their teacher, and slaves are not greater than their master. Students are to be like their teacher, and slaves are to be like their master.”This is a critical message. Jesus is the teacher; we can be just like him. We can sacrifice our life for the benefit of all of humanity. We truly can be as Jesus was and do as Jesus has done. It is within reach.
“But don’t be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all . . . Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul.”
