1.       Read Matthew 10:16-25

2.       As we see in our passage, we are all a mission from God.  What is that mission?  Read 2 Cor.5:18-20.

3.       According to our passage, this mission is a dangerous mission.  Where do we see this in our passage?  How does the book of Revelation in general, and ch.13 in particular, tell us this?

4.       According to Jesus, what are some of the dangers associated with mission?

5.       This mission is also a divisive mission.  What makes this mission divisive?

6.       Why is it important to know the true nature of this mission, that it is both dangerous and divisive?  Moreover, why is it important to be ready and willing to suffer?

7.       Jesus says, “Beware of men.”  In light of the danger that men pose to us, Jesus tells us to be wise and serpents and gentle as doves.  What does that mean, and how can you apply that?

8.       Jesus says, “And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake.  But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”  How does that reality help you to endure through the hardships associated with being a witness for Christ?

9.       How does this passage speak specifically to you, or what application can you draw from it?

10.   Pray!
