And He summoned the twelve and began to send them out in pairs, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits (Mark 6:7)
It was a pitch black night, perfect cover for our parachute drop. But, once we hit the ground it was hard to see anything let alone where our rally point was. Our best bet was to pair up and find the assembly area together.
Jesus recognized the human need for partnership when He sends His disciples out by twos. He knows our strong need for accountability and mutual encouragement. I’ve always found when I bring one of my ministry leaders with me, I always do a better job mentoring the guy we are concentrating on. I also discover that my co-laborer has some great ideas for the person I’m mentoring as well. Plus you have the added advantage of modeling an effective discipleship session. Together is better.
