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.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
Selah
