Find a partner and go! – “After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.” Luke 10:1

Pray for more workers to join you! – Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great but the laborers are few: Therefore pray the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Luke 10:2

Expect trials – “Go your way, behold I send you out as lambs among wolves.” Luke 10:3

Travel light and stay focused – “Carry neither money bag, knapsack nor sandals and greet no one along the road” Luke 10:4

Look for a person of peace – “But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you.” Luke 10:5- 6

Demonstrate and declare the kingdom! – “And heal the sick there and say to them, ‘The Kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke 10:9

Get ready to be rejected – “But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, ‘The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you…… He who hears you hears Me and he who rejects you rejects Me and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent me.” Luke 10:10-12,16
