The Summoner’s Twelve

Passage: Matthew 10:1-4
Service Type:

If you were trying to plan for a great movement of God in our day, what would be the qualifications you would mark down?

In this message, we look at how Jesus summoned the twelve disciples for gospel work. We look briefly at the biographical backgrounds of each of the 12—Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew (Nathaniel), Thomas, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot.

Listen as we consider how when Jesus began to preach He immediately began to disciple men, and how different the qualifications are for ministry than we might first assume. We also see how Jesus was sovereign over the choosing of the right men for what would follow, including the selection of Judas to be His betrayer.

Praise God for the incredible way by which Christianity spread through men of humble means used mightily for the name of Jesus.
