My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Luke 10

Jesus' charge

Jesus sent out 72 people to save Israel. They had a massive mission to do. They were to go where they were accepted and heal people. Rejecting Jesus is rejecting God.

They went out and had authority to cast out demons.

Jesus and God are intimately intertwined.

A man wanted to get into heaven, and correctly guessed that he should love God and love people. He asked how to love people, and Jesus told a story of a man who was beaten, and the only person who helped him was his political enemy. That's love.

It's better to love Jesus than to be busy.

Key verse:
2. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

My thoughts:
How often do we think the opposite? How often do we think that there is no point trying to save people, because no-one's interested?

That's not the case, because God's Word says that the harvest is plentiful, and we have to go out to reap. Believe God's Word, not your gut instincts.

Anyway, Jesus' whole charge to the 72 is an awesome one to read. Lots of key verses.
