In or Out?

Jesus sends His twelve disciples out on their first preaching and healing mission, but He gives instructions that surely go far beyond this one little exercise.  Those instructions make it sound like preaching the Gospel and healing people is going to generate serious opposition, even death.  How does Jesus comfort His disciples?  He gives them several reasons not to fear, but ultimately, we all have to decide, Are we on board with this Jesus, with all the risks involved, or do we want to back away?  Are we in or are we out?  From Matthew 10:26-42.
