“Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Luke 10:2
“Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Things haven’t changed much in 2,000 years. Jesus observed in His day what a thoughtful Christian observes in ours. “The harvest truly is great” (Luke 10:2).
Stroll through a bookstore and you can see shelves of books on “new age” and “spirituality.” But what is called “new age” is merely the age-old desire to make some sense out of life. Citizens of our age try to satisfy their thirst for significance by drinking too much, eating too much, watch- ing too much television. What they are longing for is Jesus Christ.
The great theologian Augustine took the pulse of his time and ours when he wrote, “O Lord, You have made us for Yourself, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in You.”
The harvest has never been greater. But Jesus noted, “The labourers are few.” Why? How come there aren’t enough workers to gather in the crop? There are certainly enough professing Chris- tians to make a dent in the harvest, but we don’t seem to want to go. Is it a fear that we may fail? Are we afraid that people will reject us and our message?
Don’t let fear stop you. Go out into the “fields” of your neighborhood, your worksite, your school. You can’t control the response but you can preach the message.
If faith in Christ is worth having, it’s worth sharing.
