YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
Our Homo Mission Work.
I I. The Seventy Sent Forth (vv. 1, 2).
) 1. Appointed by tho Lord (v. 1).
Only those should go forth who nro
appointed by the Lord.
2. Sent Forth Two by Two (v. 1).
The purpose of this wns that they
I might mutually help, counsel and sup
i port each other.
I fl. Iteason for Their Appointment (v.
2). The harvest was great, but the la
, borers were few. The task before the
niirUttim .inn--.!, iifini, n.i.ii.f mrvi
..-. .. .l.l.l II1IV1 IH..IIIJI tJJJ
years Is still great.
1. Pray the Lord to Send Forth La
borers (v. 2). Tho realization of the
prodigious task before us will cause
us to pray to the Lord to send forth
II. Instructions Given (vv. 3-10).
1. He Iteveals the Dangers Confront
ing Them (v. .'). They were thrust
forth by the Lord to proclaim His
name, though so doing would expose
them to deadly peril, even us lambs
surrounded by hungry wolves. It mat
ers not what the dangers are If tho
Lord sends forth.
2. Five From All Incumbrance (v.
1). The mission was urgent, so all that
would In any way hinder the spoedy
execution of the task was to be left
It. Distraction of Social Intercourse
to I!e Omitted (v1. 41). Kastern saluta
tions were long-drawn affairs. To go
Into such formalities would delay
4. Ilclmvior In the Homes Whore Ite
cclved (vv. .1-0). (1) Offer the peaco
of the gospel (vv. fi, fl). This Is to bo
done regardless as to whether It will
be received or not. Thete Is a reflex
blessedness in preaching the gospel.
Fven when tho message Is rejected tho
effort Is not wasted, but comes buck to
the one who has made the effort. (2)
Do not shift qunrters (vv. 7, 8). Mis
sionaries should remain In the homo
where they have been received, con
tent with whnt Is given them. They
should not demand better food, nnd
more comfortable quarters than whnt
Is commonly provided. However, thnt
which Is given should be gratefully re
ceived, for the laborer Is worthy of his
hire. CI) Healed the sick (v. 0).
' These disciples were given power to
heal the sick. The ministers of Christ
should seek to give relief to those in
distress and use every opportunity to
proclaim tho gospel messnge.
fi. The Awful Fate of Those Who Re
ject Christ's Message (vv. 10-10). Their
case Is mote hopeless than that of
Sodom. Thoo who reject Christ's mes-
I sengers reject Christ.
, III. The Return of the Seventy (vv.
1. Their Report (v. 17). They were
highly elated. They seemed to bo
agreeably surprised. They not only
found that they could heal the sick,
hut cast out demons also. They seemed
to he filled with self-satisfaction. It Is
easy even in Christian nervlce to bo
! spoiled by our successes.
2. Jesus' A.iswor (vv. 13-21). (1) IIo
1 told them It was no surprise to Illin
(vv. IS, 10). With, prophetic eye IIo
saw their success as Indicating thnt
time when Uie prlnc of this world
would be oerthrown (John 12:31).
Hy virtue of His mighty triumph over
Satan Ho assures them that they need
have no feai of what should befall
them. Nothhif-; could harm them ; noth
ing could prosper which opposed them.
Indeed, nothing enn harm tho servant
who goes aboat His Master's business.
(2) Rvnl cause for rejoicing (v. 20).
Ho promptly rebuked them, telling
them that their chief Joy should be be
cause of the!r heavenly relation, not
because of these miraculous gifts.
That above Ml which should provoke
gratitude Is the fact that God has
chosen In Chi 1st and saved us, Inscrib
ing our names In heaven. (3) Jesus'
exultation (vy. 21, 22). The conscious
ness thnt soon the victory would bo
won because God had committed nil
things unto 1 Hid, and that only as men
received Illiu could they know the
Father, caused Him to rcjoico In what
wns being accomplished. (-1) Congrat
ulates tho dliMiples. (vv. 23, 21).

do : Speak ye every man the truth to
his neighbor; execute tho Judgment of
truth and pence In your gates.
