Jesus appointed 70 and sent them in groups of two to every city and place where He was going to come. He asked them to beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest as lambs in the midst of wolves (Lk. 10:1-3). Prayerwalk an area first by asking God to send out laborers into His harvest field.
Carry no money or supplies and not greet anyone on the way. Whatever city you enter, stay and don't leave a house containing a man of peace until peace rests and remains there (Lk. 10:3-8). Trust God's provision as you invest time discipling men and women of peace in homes among their networks.
Heal those who are sick and say, "The kingdom of God has come near to you." If they don't listen, their judgment would be worse than Tyre and Sidon by going to Hades. One who listens to you listens to Me and one who rejects you rejects Me (Lk. 10:9-16). God's holistic miracles of healing authenticate your ministry to those who experience God's kingdom.
After the 70 told Jesus the demons were subject to them in His name, He said he watched Satan fall from heaven like lightning and gave authority over the enemy so nothing would injure them. They rejoiced that their names were recorded in heaven instead of the spirits being subjected to them. Jesus rejoiced that the Father hid these things from the wise and intelligent and revealed them to anyone the Son willed. Many prophets and kings wished they could see these things but did not hear them (Lk. 10:17-24). Disciplemakers offer feedback to their disciples to maintain their proper priorities.
After a lawyer asked what He should do to inherit eternal life, Jesus said to love God with all your heart, soul, strength and mind and your neighbor as yourself. Jesus told the parable about the Good Samaritan who felt compassion on the person who had been robbed as he passed by. He bandaged wounds, poured oil, put him on his own beast, brought him to an inn and took care of him. He gave two denarii to the innkeeper while he went away (Lk. 10:25-37). Show compassion in ministering to peoples' real needs as they come across your path who could be men and women of peace.
Martha offered hospitality as she welcomed Jesus into her home. Her sister, Mary, listened to the Lord's word, seated at His feet. Martha was distracted with all her preparations and compassionate service toward the needy. Jesus said she was worried and bothered about so many things, but Mary chose the good part (Lk. 10:38-42). Prioritize your relationship with Christ to remove distractions from your purpose in ministry.
