Jesus chose Twelve Disciples.
That is fact. Yet, He sent out an additional seventy.
“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come (Luke 10:1 KJV).”
I am allowing truths from this passage to seep into my soul.
There is strength in numbers when the LORD is keeping count.
In sending them out two-by-two, the disciples had the companionship and prayer support they would need in their outreach ministry. In addition, the second disciple could confirm the testimony of the first to share.
Their outreach was in preparation of Jesus arrival.
I cannot fathom the numbers of those that Jesus has sent in his name. I do know that he wants you and I personally involved in the expansion of his kingdom.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen (Matthew 28:18-20 KJV).”
