“Got an Appointment?”
Mark 3: 14: “And Jesus appointed twelve, that they might be with Him, and that He might send them out to preach.” Jesus never apologized that He had appointed (chosen) certain people to be with Him more than the crowd. These would eventually lead (and build the foundation of) the entire Church on earth, and had to know Jesus and His Gospel backwards and forwards. Even today, not everyone has this intensity of calling, and to assume it for one’s self (or to bestow it on another) without the calling from Christ always leads to major problems. There are a million miles between ambition and anointing/appointing.
