He 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.” Luke 10:2
Big jobs come up every so often in which many people are needed to complete it. Managers are willing to go out and hire nearly anyone and everyone just to be able to accomplish the job.
The level of desire for the type of worker is often lowered, just so that there can be enough workers to complete the job. All that is needed is someone willing to work to get the job done.
As Jesus is getting ready to send the disciples out, He tells them that the harvest is plentiful and that more workers are needed.
The job that Jesus came to this earth to do was to seek and save everyone that is possible. Since the time of Jesus walking on the earth the number of people on the earth has increased dramatically.
Today there are nearly 8 billion people on the earth and continually increasing. Of these nearly 8 billion people, only a small fraction know Jesus personally as Lord and Savior. This implies that there is a great work to be done.
Just as a farmer has to get workers to go out into the field to pull in the harvest when it is ready, so God is needing workers to go into the field of this world to get people.
Sadly, many in the church leave that job for others to do. They feel that someone else will do the job. Every believer needs to be willing to be used by God to bring someone else to Him.
If every believer would be willing to be used by God to bring in two or three, or more, from the harvest, the world would be changed for God very quickly.
At some point in your life, someone took the time to bring you into God’s family. You were harvested by some other believer. Allow yourself to be used by God to bring someone else in.
There are several billion people out there that do not know Jesus. You just may be the worker that can change that.
Ask God to show you the crops that are ready to be harvested. Then be willing to go out and harvest the fields of earth for God.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that God will open your eyes to the harvest fields of this earth; that you will allow God to use you to draw others to Him; and that you will be a faithful worker for God in His fields.
