The Law of Empowerment Part 9

Jesus Empowered His Team-Luke 10:1-24

Jesus gave away His power to a team of 70 leaders and sent them out. Although they felt apprehensive about this first ministry tour, Jesus gave them everything they needed to succeed. Note how He equipped these leaders: to them and sent them out (v. 1).

  1. He gave them a meaningful task to prepare cities for His arrival (v. 1).
  2. He told them why their mission was so important (v. 2).
  3. He calmed their fears with a long preparation speech (vv. 2-16).
  4. He cautioned them about possible hardship (v. 3).
  5. He issued explicit instructions about potential scenarios (vv. 3-11).
  6. He imparted His convictions about their work (vv.12-15).
  7. He rejoiced with them as they returned (vv. 17, 18).
  8. He evaluated and debriefed them on their experience (vv. 19, 20).
  9. He prayed with them and affirmed their gifts and their future (vv. 21-24).
