Harvest Time

Harvest Time

Matthew 9:37-38 (read 35-38)
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

There is so much work to do, yet limited time to  do it, coupled with extreme challenges as we attempt to assert.

Jesus looked at the conditions of His time and the state of the world and His heart of compassion rose. It was not a spirit of complaining about what He recognized, but a desire to see the change in the lives of those who where scattered, lost, damage, abandoned, etc., sounds like the state of our nation and world, homelessness, social injustice, immorality, families scattered, starvation and the list is endless, but it is just right for The Gospel.

Jesus literally informs the disciples that there is an amazing harvest (limitless amount of souls), but there is a need for labors. Jesus makes it clear we are not going to "throw shade" on those who are engaged, but we are going to pray to the Lord of The Harvest to send forth labourers (like minded works) into "His Harvest (not our harvest) God's Harvest."

Our Prayer
Father, we thank you for those who labor in Your Harvest, we pray for more labourers, that the harvest rot not on the vine, help us not to complain about what we are empowered to impact, in Jesus Name, Amen.
