Luke 10:1-12

After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. He said to them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into his harvest. Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, "Peace to this house!" And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you. Remain in the same house, eating and drinking whatever they provide, for the labourer deserves to be paid. Do not move about from house to house. Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; cure the sick who are there, and say to them, "The kingdom of God has come near to you." But whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you, go out into its streets and say, "Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you. Yet know this: the kingdom of God has come near." I tell you, on that day it will be more tolerable for Sodom than for that town.

Luke 10:1-12

    • To spread God’s kingdom, Jesus chooses to depend on the various gifts of his chosen ones. He sends us out just as we are. We carry little except our limited strengths and our frailties. The gift of peace that we can bring, to those who accept us, is more precious than any casual roadside conversation.
    • Lord, peace means tranquillity of spirit. It is a great gift to give to others. But before I share it, I must be possessed by it myself. Christian peace comes from knowing that you love me endlessly, that you are always with me and watching out for me. You are my Shepherd and you will lead me along the right path.

    • ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ Am I receptive to God’s word spoken to my heart each day? I thank God for the help that Sacred Space gives me to become a true hearer of the Word.
    • Peace is an integral part of the kingdom of God. ‘The kingdom of God is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit…Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding’ (Romans 14:17,19). I pray to be like Saint Francis who was a messenger of peace and reconciliation. ‘Lord, make me a channel of your peace!’

    • Jesus, you came as one bringing peace, and told us to greet people with a word of peace, not hostility, or judgment. May your blessing flow through me, so that when I leave people, they may feel approved of, contented and tranquil.
    • There's something in this bit of the gospel about being single-minded in the service of the Lord. Where you find a good place to spread the word, you stay there. You move on if there is no openness. Our big message is that the kingdom of God is very near. This nearness is in the person of Jesus. God's reign of love and justice is near to us when we are closely in touch with the Lord Jesus.
    • A harvest can be ruined by a lack of workers. A field full of fruit can go to waste when there are not enough people to pick the fruit. The world is the harvest of God where his love and his word are sown. Without the followers of Jesus, the word is unspoken and even the love of God is unrecognised. Prayer can increase our desire to spread the word and love of Jesus Christ in our immediate surroundings.
    • These instructions of Jesus seem to be about being single-minded in his service. We put trust in him rather than in having spares of everything or by depending on money. Prayer and service, love of others and of the poor, bring the kingdom near in word and deed.
    • The Lord had his helpers - people went before him to announce he was coming. The kingdom of God is never spread on one's own. As a community we listen to the word of God and respond. Team work is the way forward for any Christian community. Prayer helps us recognise the gifts and talents of everyone, and the dignity of each of us in the sight of God.
    • There is an encouragement here from Jesus to place trust only in him as we work for the kingdom of God. We are to carry little for the journey. Often what we do in faith and love seems to bear little fruit. Offered to the work of Jesus in the world, we never know when it may bear fruit. We are people who work hard for the Lord and leave the results to him.
    • Jesus sees that the harvest was great and tells us to ask God for help. Wherever I see need, I will look for God's help and see what I can do.
    • Jesus does not want the disciples to be encumbered but wants them to be free and ready to move in his service, proclaiming peace. I pray for the freedom I need to be a messenger of peace and a witness to God's presence.
