Jesus went through all the towns and villages
Teaching … preaching the good news of the kingdom
And healing every disease and sickness.
When he saw the crowds
He had compassion on them
Because they were harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples
“The harvest is plentiful
But the workers are few.
Ask the Lord of the harvest …
To send out workers into his harvest field.
This time of the year is the make-it-or-break-it time for farmers. If the weather has allowed a good crop to grow they only have so much time to harvest it before the weather turns foul. Whole families and hired hands work from sun up until well after sundown to bring in the crop. Whatever is left in the field when the weather does turn is lost revenue to the farmer.
Many are wondering what their ministry is – where the Lord can use them. Here then is a ministry – ask the Lord if you are to go out into His field as a worker to bring in the harvest. It’s a simple question which will receive a simple answer. Are you willing to ask it?
The Lord is coming!
