SENT OUT TO SERVE!
1. In II Corinthians 7:9-10 there are two kinds of sorrows that are spoken of. Please explain both of them.
There is godly sorrow that leads to action, it leads to repentance. We see ourselves as we really are and we truly are sorry for our actions and we ask the Lord for forgiveness. That leads to salvation, to life. Then there is worldly sorrow that is only sorry they got caught. Jails are filled with people that have this kind of sorrow. Their lives are not changed, and in the end they will die in their sins! Thus, we have a godly sorrow that leads to repentance and life, and a worldly sorrow that leads only to death!
2. In Mark chapter 6, Jesus sends out the 12 Apostles to minister, and He sends them out two by by two. Why did He not send them out alone, they could have accomplished more, couldnt they? See Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.
There is strength in numbers. They can encourage each other. Help each other. Comfort each other. Protect each other. And for extra credit, by the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses, what they say will be established.

3. According to Romans 10:17, how does faith come and grow?
By hearing and believing in the Words of God. It is one thing to hear what God is saying, but you must take it a step further and believe in it, apply it to your life, or your faith is empty.
4. According to Romans 10:17 and Mark 6:12, what is our response as we minister to people? What do we say to them?
That we speak forth the Words of God, exposing the truth to the people, showing them that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and that their only hope is in the Lord. Thus, they need to repent, to get right with God, let Him become their Lord and Savior and they will be clean, they will be saved. That is the Good News we are to speak forth!
