Sheep Among Wolves

Read Matthew 10:16-26

In calling us to go to the lost sheep, the Lord Jesus makes clear the situation we are entering - He is sending us as sheep among wolves. These wolves are not necessarily the world against us, but primarily false teacher and those who purposefully try to oppose the church by coming into the church bringing worldliness in their train, or through schism try and gather a following for themselves. In telling us this, the Lord Jesus teaches how we are to conduct ourselves as sheep.
