DCLM Daily Manna 27 December 2018 Devotional by Pastor W.F Kumuyi
Topic: A Two-fold Cord
Text: Luke 10:1-24
Key Verse: “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).
Message: Working and walking in pairs was a common practice in the early church. As “Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer” to pray, so were Paul and Barnabas separated for the evangelistic work by the church under the instruction of the Holy Ghost. In fact, the Lord Jesus had taught the disciples this pattern by practice in His days on earth. He sent two disciples to fetch the donkey for His triumphant entry (Luke 19:29) and despatched Peter and John to prepare the Passover (Luke 22:8). In the text under consideration, He sent the disciples “two and two” for evangelistic outreach. As God declares, “It is not good that the man should be alone”, the Preacher affirms: “…but woe to him that is alone”.

Thus, Paul lamented: “…no man stood with me, but all men forsook me”. And when Barnabas left him, he sought a partner in Silas. Loneliness should be detested by all believers. Our Lord teaches us that in our Christian walk and work, we should have a partner. You should have a Christian friend, a prayer partner and an evangelism partner. A godly husband should team up with his godly wife, a Christian brother and another brother, and two sisters together: “…two are better than one: because they have a good reward”. When we team up in our evangelistic outreaches, great shall be our rewards.
Pray for a believing partner with whom you can preach the gospel sustainably. A two-person team of gospel proclaimers must always be raised and sustained in the church to ceaselessly declare the gospel as the Lord did with His disciples. If those men succeeded because they obeyed the Lord, there are clear indications of enduring success for us if we proceed in the might of the Lord to partner with one another to preach the gospel.
Thought for the Day: As Paul plants the seed of the Word, let Apollos water.
