The harvest of souls on the earth is ripe. But Jesus said in Matthew chapter 9 that the laborers are few. He told His disciples to pray for laborers to be sent out into the harvest fields of the earth (v. 38).
Why are there so few laborers in the Lord’s harvest? I’m sorry to say that sometimes we Christians are so busy enjoying God’s blessings that we don’t have time to go into the world and be witnesses for Him.
Jesus said in Acts 1:8 (NLT), “You will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere.”
Do you realize how many people today are lost and going to hell? Do you understand the exciting opportunity this gives us to tell the world about Jesus? Our first responsibility as Christians is to proclaim this wonderful Good News—the Gospel!
Where are we going to be witnesses? Wherever God takes us. Every day we come in contact with someone who doesn’t know Christ. How sensitive are we to listen to the voice of God and pray for an opportunity to minister to them? Are we too busy to lend a helping hand to people who are lost, those who are hurting, and bring them in?
You don’t know what lies ahead for the person who may sit next to you on your job. You don’t know if you’ll ever see them again after today. Let me ask you a thought-provoking question. If that person were to die today, would you see them in Heaven?
We have such a revelation of the truth and knowledge of the Word, and yet in so many cases, we’re keeping it to ourselves. We’re not proclaiming it to the world. God didn’t give us this knowledge to keep it to ourselves. We are to share the Good News with others and be His witnesses. He wants us to go into the highways and byways and compel people to come in!
Our first responsibility as Christians is to proclaim this wonderful Good News—the Gospel!
It’s Time to Draw In the Net
Are you ready to be a laborer—a witness for the Lord? We are here to carry the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ around the globe.
I encourage you to rededicate your heart to get back to the Great Commission, which is the first calling of every Christian. I want that desire for souls to well up inside you so much that you’ll wake up every morning and pray, “Lord, where can I be a witness for You today?”
I believe the fire of God will burn so intensely in your heart that you will go out and be a witness for Him in your world. I encourage you to pray, “God, give me a greater passion for souls.” And when you pray that prayer, He will grant the desire of your heart.
That’s what will bring the King back—when we, the people of God, stir ourselves up to win souls and the entire world hears that Jesus Christ is Lord. I believe we’ve already stepped into the edge of the great, last-day revival, but we must not stop.
We must press in and stir ourselves up to pray. The last great move of God is being birthed by prayer. We need to pray for signs, wonders, and miracles to confirm God’s Word. Those are the things that will draw people to the Gospel.
In these dark days and perilous times, I’ve never been so excited. Why? Because we’re going to go out and be fishers of men. And we won’t be able to catch them all with just one line. We will have to draw them in with a net.
Are you ready to do that? Are you willing to join me and be a laborer in reaping a great harvest of souls?
