This week we note principles to be learned from Jesus’ instructions to the 72 disciples sent out on mission…

  1. They were sent to prepare the way for Jesus.
  2. They were to go out (rather than invite people in) in twos.
  3. They were to pray for more   labourers.
  4. They were to be single-minded – not side-tracked.
  5. They were to approach in peace and fit in.
  6. They were to cure the sick (ie demonstrate the Kingdom).
  7. They were to proclaim The Kingdom (not just hope people will Guess
  8. They were to warn people who reject the Kingdom…and so are we!
