TOPIC: Appointed And Sent Forth
“Go your ways; behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.”.
DCLM Daily Manna Monday 26 September 2022 OUTLINE
Our greatest task in the world is to preach the gospel body Suppose that all the treasures in the world were gathered together and one man is so honoured to be the account officer, the world would consider this man as indeed privileged. Yet, the answer to the divine call is incomparably greater than possessing all the treasures of the world put together.
After appointing the twelve disciples and giving them power and authority to go and preach the kingdom of God and heal the sick, Christ appointed seventy others and sent them two-by-two for the same purpose. Though they were sent forth as lambs among wolves, it was the sole prerogative of the Lord to determine the scope of their assignment.
The gospel outreach is the great commission of the Lord. The work demands unalloyed obedience, tactfulness, vigilance and peaceful disposition. His appointees are to carry out the mandate despite opposition and hostilities. Obedience to the mandate requires prayer and submission to the guidelines by the Master. A tactful and responsive approach in carrying out the task will yield tremendous result and reward at the end.
It is absurdity to despise the wisdom of God in sending the lambs among the wolves and damning to reject the message of His appointed messengers (Luke 10:10,12-16). Notably, acceptance of the message of Christ’s messengers is an acceptance of Christ, His redemptive offer and blessings. Accept, believe and comply with His precepts to be saved today. There is always testimony in obedience to His instruction without questioning.
