Choosing the 12

Read Mk 3.13-19, Lk 6.12-16

And He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach,
(Mark 3:14)

Over the next few days I'd like to camp out on the Choosing of the 12. This is a significant part of Jesus’ ministry strategy that goes beyond disciplemaking and there is much confusion and consternation over the concept of selection. Hopefully I can bring some clarity to the reasons and methods of selection. There are seven components of the Choosing of the 12 that I’d like to address;
· Why?
· Prayer
· Appointment
· With Him
· Future Responsibilities
· Apostolic Leadership
· Failure
