The Gospel of Matthew, Day 25

Meditation and Memory Verse:
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
2 Timothy 3:12 NIV
Matthew 10:24-31 NIV
24 “The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household!
26 “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Discussion: Jesus tells them to not be afraid 3 times in this passage of scripture. What does this tell you about the disciples? What does Jesus say to comfort them in this passage?
