Luke 10:1  The Lord now chose seventy-two other disciples and sent them ahead in pairs to all the towns and places he planned to visit. (NLT)

Biblical leadership is not limited to a small group of men who keep the circle tight and exclusive. Spiritual leadership is entrusted to all who will prepare the way for Jesus, who will announce the Good News, and who will work at gathering his harvest. 

The Apostles of Jesus could not carry the load of the Good News all by themselves. Pastors and church staff members cannot carry the load all by themselves today. Discipleship is an all-play sport. 

The word “other” in this verse draws our attention back to Luke 9:1, 2. Jesus sent his twelve disciples out to “tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” In chapter 10, this commission is extended to “others.” They carried out the ministry the apostles had previously carried out. (See verse 17. See also Jesus’ reaction to their obedience and effectiveness in verses 21-24). 

Here is a Great Assumption: If you know Jesus, and if you know people who do not know Jesus, Jesus is sending you to help those you know who don’t know him to help them know him like you know him. 

Sentness is not a special calling; it is every believer’s calling. Each of us is an Ambassador of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20, 21). 

Who will you bless today with the Good News of Jesus? How will you live sent, live on mission, for the rest of your days?

I will live with a conscious awareness of sentness.

Our Father, thank you for drawing me to yourself. Thank you for family, friends, and others who showed me the way. Use me to help others come to know you and experience you. Amen.

I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
