Let Jesus Work Through YouAudio / Produced by The High Calling
We live in a spectator age. I don't play basketball. I watch the San Antonio Spurs play basketball. But Church isn’t a stadium or a theatre. Jesus doesn't call us to be spectators. He sends us out to be the church.
In Luke 10, Jesus sends out 72 disciples with the gospel’s transforming message. These 72 were not the apostles. They weren’t clergy or professional pastors. They were ordinary workaday people, like you and me.
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. The 72 didn’t stay in the stands as spectators. They themselves became players in the great game, following Christ down onto the court, into a full life of transforming love . . . every single day. That, my friends, is the high calling of our daily work.
Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. (Luke 10:3)
