Harvest — Day 31

Believe It

Matthew 9:37-38: “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Psalm 67:6: “The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us.”

Psalm 85:12: “The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest.”

Live It

We can learn three lessons from today’s text.

  1. People are more inclined to listen than we think. The Lord promises an abundant harvest. If so, why do so many Christians persist in saying that “people are hard, they don’t want anything to do” with God’s word? In an exhaustive survey of non-believers, 40 percent said they would attend a church, if invited. That is millions of people. Let them say no. Don’t say no for them, without even asking them.
  2. God is better prepared to bless than we imagine. Most of us have responsibilities that keep us from teaching others of Jesus, full time. But God has no such limitations. His Spirit works from the moment a person is born, to bring him/her into a saving relationship with Him. What good news for us! We are not going at this alone. If we ask the God of the harvest for His help, He will answer.
  3. We’re better prepared to share than we think we are. To share Christ does not require a degree in theology. With the knowledge you have, you’re ready. Someone has said that witnessing for Christ is like one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread.

Share It

Invite three persons today to attend the week of changed lives. Pray in advance for God to show you whom to invite.

My Prayer Today: For all those invited to come.
