While we were not part of the 70 Jesus personally sent out, there are principles and values to live out from this passage that are for us as well. It will require reflection on our part as to how we can effectively share the Gospel with those around us and be the harvesters that are so urgently needed. Every single one of us is being called to work in the harvest field.
It took great strength and courage for Jesus to make a journey that would cost him his life. There are many lessons we can learn for our own journey of faith as we hear some of the stories and encounters Jesus had on the way to Jerusalem.
