Perhaps the most astonishing thing about Jesus’ ministry is that after three and a half years of hard work with his disciples and others, after healing who knows how many hundreds of people, having fed crowds of several thousand, with people thronging him everywhere he went—that in the end he was left with 120 disciples. Have you ever thought about that? I know sometimes we become a little frustrated that we serve, we minister to people, we evangelize, and sometimes it seems that the results are slow. And I know that oftentimes we become very discouraged when, after having let’s say built something up, all of a sudden something happens—some little thing happens—and all of a sudden some of our people are gone and are not with us anymore. They’ve gone somewhere else, doing something else; or they’ve lost interest, have left God entirely.
