Back To The Cross
Luke 10:2-3 “Therefore said he unto them, ‘The harvest truly is great, but the labourers
are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into
His harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.’” Our Lord
sends us out for the purpose of sharing the Gospel. God uses His body as He sees fit.
Some plant; some water, but it is our Lord Who gives the increase. The Gospel changes
lives. There is a power to it because it is reinforced by the Power of the Holy Spirit. It
steps on the toes of all principalities, powers, and Satan’s domain. Luke 10:17,20 says,
“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto
us through thy name. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto
you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” Power over demons
should not be the source of joy but sonship evidenced by one’s name written in Heaven.
It is a natural tendency for us to glory in the exercise of our own power. All this arises
from pride and it being about us and our ministry rather than about Jesus and the Power
of His Name. Let us put our focus back into the right perspective.
