Matthew 10:1-4

And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease. Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
Matthew 10:1-4

Jesus chose ordinary men from very diverse backgrounds and brought them together to accomplish an extraordinary mission. Some were fishermen, every day hard-working men. Simon was a zealot, a political activist who wanted to overthrow the Roman government. Matthew was a tax collector, who worked for the government Simon wanted to overthrow.

Jesus sent these ordinary men out, endowed with His own power and authority. As long as they relied on His strength, they were unstoppable. It is the same with us. We do not all agree on everything. But we must all rally behind our Lord who sends us out, endowed with His own power by the Holy Spirit.
