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.’”
There are so many people who have not heard the true word of God. They are inundated daily by false prophets and teachers. Those who speak the truth are few. What do you preach? The true word of God or the world’s interpretation? The Kingdom of God IS at hand for YOU and we are called to preach it.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I have answered your call and said yes to your word. May I always preach the truth in my words and in my actions. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Your friends make known, O Lord, the glorious splendor of your Kingdom.
