Luke 10:2

Luke 10:2 - He (Jesus) told them. “ The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.” Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” As we look around us at the world going by we can see this to be true. There are lost and hurting people right in front of us, but we are often too calloused to even notice. These people are empty and searching for something to fill the emptiness. As Jesus said, “They are like sheep without a shepherd. We have the answer. There was a time when we too were looking, but now we have found the Truth. There is only one thing that can fill the void in our lives. Jesus found us. He brought us out of the darkness and into His marvelous light. By the grace of God we now have hope to keep going, and faith to make that hope reality. We have found God through Jesus Christ, but there are still so many that have not discovered that hope, so many who are still searching for the answer. Jesus instructs us here to pray that God send out workers into His harvest field. These workers are people like you and me that already know the Truth and are willing to share it, that some may come to know Him. Now this doesn’t mean that prayer is all you have to do. It starts with prayer, for certain, but it can’t end there. God is also calling you to be one of the workers. After Jesus says this He sends out 72 people to share the Gospel and what God has done for them. So, we need to pray, everything we do needs to begin with prayer, but then we need to go. We have a responsibility to share the message that has been entrusted to us. There are plenty out there waiting to hear what God has done in your life. Let your words and deeds speak Love to those around you. Share your heart with people, but also share your possessions and skills. If we want an effective ministry we have to invest our time and money to meet the needs of the lost and hurting that are around us. That will open doors that your words will not. Now go out and start bringing in the harvest.
