Enjoying the Journey
The words of Christ are as true today as they were nearly 2,000 years ago: “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest” (Luke 10:2). As we come into the fall of the year I am praying that God will give us a great harvest of souls and an increase in laborers. Will you join me in that prayer?
There is a reason why the laborers are scarce; the work of sowing, waiting, and reaping is not easy. The wheat harvest season in Palestine is a very hot and humid time of year. Similarly, witnessing can be uncomfortable and strenuous. Serving God is not a task for the faint of heart. In fact, right before Jesus asked His disciples to pray that God would send more laborers into the fields, three half-hearted followers of Jesus turned away when they heard about the trials and difficulties they would face (Luke 9:57-62). Yet we are still called to go out and bring in the lost. The Lord is worthy of our sacrifices because He sacrificed His very life for us!
Thank you for your faithfulness to witness where you are and your prayers for us as we go. I look forward to seeing what God will do in these meetings…
