SERMON:Mission Possible (Luke 10:1-11;16-20)

In this passage from Luke, we find our Lord Jesus sending out 72 followers of his, ahead of him to various towns. They are given a mandate; a message!

That mandate, if we are to paraphrase it is:

  • Partner with me in bringing healing to those who are hurting, and in proclaiming the good news of the kingdom!

That commission does not stop with these 72. Instead, it is one that extends to all who call themselves followers of Jesus! He still says to his church in the 21st Century: As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”

The sharing of the Good News is not limited to pastors or other church leaders.

  • We all have a story to tell!
  • Every single baptized, born again believer in Jesus Christ is invited to be part of proclaiming this story of salvation.
  • We are all called to be part of the mission of God in our world.

In this sermon, we consider this mission, of which all Christians are called to be a part.

Listen along (by clicking player below) as we explore this topic together…(I preached this sermon at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 3rd July  2016). God bless you!




Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.
