And He was saying to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Luke 10:2
Jesus is saying there is a lot of work to do for Gods Kingdom , yet he cant find anyone to do any work? Sound familiar? How many of you have ever coached or volunteered for an organization, and when you try to find anyone to help everyone runs away? Why? Because people want money, people want great recognition, people want to be famous, nobody wants to labor for free, right?
Again this is a heart issue, people still living for the world trying to merge Jesus with it. The world and Jesus will never coexist as they are in opposition of each other. Jesus says the laborers are few, the world tells us we have billions of Christians. Where are they? With these numbers we should have an evangelist at every street corner in the world
“Go; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Luke 10:3
But you say “Oh they’ll make fun of me, they’ll mock me, they might even kill me” Yes Jesus said anyone who wants to save their life must lose it. When you come to Christ, nothing else is of more importance! What happens when lamb are around wolves? They get torn apart, likely killed. This is exactly what Jesus is preparing us for
Your persecution is not a surprise to Christ, he warned us this would happen! The harvest is plentiful, are you willing to go to work in the name of Jesus?
