Luke 10 - Being part of the Solution [Session 5]
7/04/2016 10:04:27 AM |
We know the problem: not enough workers for the harvest. But God’s already decided on the solution: US. We, followers of Jesus, are the ones who have been sent by Jesus to share His Good News to the people of the world. We continue to be God’s messengers. We are His workers in His harvest field, seeking to share the Good News with the people who need to hear it. We are here to be part of what God is doing in the world. This salvation is wide and deep.
Read Luke 10
"After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest. Go your way; behold I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house!’ And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the labourer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you. Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, ‘Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.”
Discuss and Reflect
- Jesus expects His followers to share the message of the kingdom to the towns they go to and the people they meet. When was the last time you shared about your faith with someone else? What is stopping you from sharing something of your faith in the coming weeks?
- The kingdom of God is near. How can you bring the kingdom of God to people in your community? Talk in specifics, what would this tangibly look like?
- Who will you ask to hold you accountable and follow you up if your words/ actions do not share the message of Jesus authentically?
