Reading along with us in Luke? Here’s today’s reading:

Luke 10 (ESV)

After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by twoahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.

“When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you.Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house....Continue Reading

  1. 16″The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent
    . 20Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
    Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! 24For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”❤️

  2. Jesus certainly seeks to multiply His life and ministry. This is reflected in the 72, but it also should be reflected in each one of us. They are to depend on God for their sustenance but God will work through people in towns that will provide for them. They are to present the message, but not force it on people. If people reject it, an awareness of what they are missing and a warning will do. As the 72 return and are rejoicing in how they have been used, Jesus warns them about pride and uses satan as an example. It always important to keep our pride in check. God’s power is to bring Him glory and not us and it should always be about God’s power and truth and gifting. So there is no room for pride.

    And what a good lesson the story of the good Samaritan is for who is our neighbor. It’s not just the people next door but anyone with need who our paths cross.

    And the balance that needs to be stuck between Marthas and Marys. Learning, reference, fellowship with God is an essential part of the Christian life. We need to make sure business doesn’t crowd that out. But it certainly doesn’t mean the dishes don’t need to get done! Balance!

  3. “And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

    Just a “translation” comment. I noticed that you referred to the “72,” but my version (at the moment NKJV) says “the 70”. 70 makes more sense in terms of God’s consistency in numbers in the scriptures. I did a little research…and I guess it doesn’t really matter…but I do think that 70 is more consistent with God’s use of #s throughout scripture.
