In these verses we find the apostles returning from a preaching mission Jesus sent them on in verse 7:
They are held accountable for their actions, as well as their activities.
They gave account to the Lord, Himself, teaching us that we too, must give account of our actions.
Matthew 12:36, “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”
Romans 14:12, “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
So how can we properly prioritize our actions and activities?
I. REFLECT ON YOUR ACTIVITIES FOR THE DAY, WEEK, MONTH AND YEAR, VERSE. 30.
And the apostles gathered themselves together.That is, those whom he had sent out two and two, verse 7.
Having traveled around the country, they returned and met Jesus at Capernaum.
- Realize we too, must give account.
- Realize that every job is important to God.
