Jesus sends us on a mission.
Jesus has things He wants me to do for Him. I need to understand His urgency. In His new plan for me, He has places He wants me to go for Him.
Taking time to stop along the way gets me out of synch with His mission for me.
Jesus demands I get moving and get to where He wants me to go. Nothing else is acceptable to Him.
Later the Master selected seventy and sent them ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he intended to go. He gave them this charge:
“What a huge harvest! And how few the harvest hands. So on your knees; ask the God of the Harvest to send harvest hands.
“On your way! But be careful—this is hazardous work. You’re like lambs in a wolf pack.
“Travel light. Comb and toothbrush and no extra luggage.
“Don’t loiter and make small talk with everyone you meet along the way.
