Luke 10 Trip

“The Lord now chose seventy-two other disciples and sent them on ahead in pairs to all the towns and villages he planned to visit.  These were his instructions to them: “the harvest is so great, but the workers are so few.  Pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest, and ask him to send out more workers for his fields.  Go now, and remember that I am sending you out as lambs among wolves.  Don’t take along any money, or a traveler’s bag, or even an extra pair of sandals.  And don’t stop to greet anyone an the road.

“Whenever you enter a home, give it your blessing.  If those who live there are worthy, the blessing will stand; if they are not, the blessing will return to you.  When you enter a town, don’t move around from home to home.  Stay in one place, eating and drinking what they provide you.  Don’t hesitate to accept hospitality, because those who work deserve their pay.

“If a town welcomes you, eat wherever is set before you and heal the sick.  As you heal them, say, ‘The Kingdom of God is near you now.’ But if a town refuses to welcome you, go out into its streets and say, ‘We wipe the dust of your town from our feet as a public announcement of you doom.  And don’t forget the Kingdom of God is near!’  The truth is, even wicked Sodom will be better off than such a town on the judgement day.”

 – Luke 10:1-12

I have the priveledge of knowing some amazing guys on campus, some guys that know God, not only his Word and Works, but they have a relationship with their father in heaven.  This week, as most of us take a break from classes, three groups of four of the most amazing men i know set out to various cities on the East Coast in what is being called the “Luke 10 Trip.” 

These groups, in Philidelphia, Baltimore, and Washinton D.C., are witnesses to God’s Love and Kingdom here on earth.  I know they will be hubled and broken before God, because God is showing them how mighty and powerful he is. 

It is my prayer that they find safety, not of this world but safety under the outstretched wings of God.  That they are moved to do His will wherever and whenever they find themselves.  I pray that they find a hunger that this world cannot satisfy and a thurst that this world will not quinch.  I pray that God uses them in ways that they could not begin to understand.

God Bless and PEACE
