I am one of the 72!

“After this, the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.” (Luke 10:1 NIV) 

Who are the Seventy Two?
How did Jesus recruit them?
Did they go to a Bible College?
Did they do the Alpha Course?
Were they in right standing before men and God?
Were they a people with high morals, and high standards?
Were they religious?

I don’t know! But I am one of the 72!

They followed Jesus!

Who did Jesus spend most of his time with? Who became his friends?

Ordinary people, families, secret followers, doctors, secret religious authorities, adulterous, tax collector, people who like to party and eat and drink lots, girls with a very questionable reputation. Hard working fishermen, some of them women who cooked meals. Hurting fathers and mothers wanting their sons and daughters to get healed, high roman officers, the sick, the widow, the thieves,  the oppressed, the possessed, people without hope and people wanting to be loved.

I believe that these were some the seventy-two!

These 72 met the one who is TRUTH and LIFE.

I am one of the 72!

So…

“Heal the sick in it and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’”  (Luke 10:9 ESV)
