The Lord Jesus appointed seventy-two disciples whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit. He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest. Go on your way; behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves. Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals; and greet no one along the way. Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household.’ If a peaceful person lives there, your peace will rest on him; but if not, it will return to you. Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you, for the laborer deserves payment. Do not move about from one house to another. Whatever town you enter and they welcome you, eat what is set before you, cure the sick in it and say to them, ‘The Kingdom of God is at hand for you.’”
Jesus has passed this power down to us, along with the command to bring His word to all the people. Do you believe that is your task? Do you believe you have the power to proclaim His word, to cure the sick and bring peace to others?? You should, because He has given it to you.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the powers that you have nur kingdom. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
