This past Sunday night at our church we prayed for God to raise up workers for His harvest. Individuals prayed for God to raise up men and women for full-time ministry from within our church and from within all the continents. It is interesting to think about the fact that Jesus told the disciples that there were not enough workers for the harvest. I don’t know what they must have been thinking, but it probably would have made me a little nervous. Jesus looked around at all the people, and seeing their incredible spiritual needs, He says that Christ-followers are going to need reenforcements! Fast-forward to today and the need is still there. There is incredible spiritual need around this world, and there are still not enough workers for the harvest.
We should probably take this instruction from Jesus more seriously. The need for more workers for God’s harvest has always been real, but this is the only life that those reading this post will have. So Christ-followers, let us confess our sins and humbly ask God to raise up more workers for His harvest. Let all glory be His and His alone.
