13 耶穌上了山，隨自己的意思叫人來；他們便來到他那裡。 14 他
並給他們權柄趕鬼。 16 這十二個人有西門（耶穌又給他起名叫彼
得）， 17 還有西庇太的兒子雅各和雅各的兄弟約翰（又給這兩個
人起名叫半尼其，就是雷子的意思）， 18 又有安得烈、腓力、巴
門， 19 還有賣耶穌的加略人猶大。
24 你要除掉邪僻的口，棄絕乖謬的嘴。 25 你的眼目要向前正
看，你的眼睛當向前直觀。 26 要修平你腳下的路，堅定你一
切的道， 27 不可偏向左右，要使你的腳離開邪惡。
13Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they
came to him.
14He appointed twelve—designating them apostles—that they
might be with him and that he might send them out to preach
15and to have authority to drive out demons.
16 These are the twelve he appointed: Simon (to
whom he gave the name Peter
17 James son of Zebedee and his brother John (to
them he gave the name Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder);
18Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus,
Simon the Zealot
19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
1. We know a few of the more famous (and infamous) disciples, but there
are many in this list we know nothing about at all. Though they were
also with Jesus for more than three years, received teachings and care
from Jesus, were commanded to preach, heal, and cast out demons.
However, they remains to be the unnoticed in the Bible and in the
2. In our own discipleship, we may be asked to do some work or to take a
stand that gets noticed by others. But often discipleship consists of
faithfulness in the small, even mundane acts of Christian service
perhaps unnoticed by all except God.
3. Are you aware of any unnoticed servers at church, home, the office or
any other places? Look for an opportunity to show appreciation, a smile,
or a thank you to these people.
4. Are you willing to be an unnoticed disciple of Christ? Is there any
behind-the-scene work that needs to be done? Ask the Lord to give you
the willingness to do the not-easily-noticed services faithfully even
without people’s recognition or appreciation.
Prayer & Journaling: On your prayer journal, as you listen to God, write down a few
thoughts, questions, words, names, drawings, or anything that has come to your mind
during this time.
Proverbs for Today: 4:24-27
24Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
25Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.
26Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
27Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.
