Continue the Harvest
"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" Romans 10:14
It probably will not appear in the local newspaper or the evening news, but heaven takes note. Quietly and inconspicuously, the church and its members follow the instruction of the Holy Spirit and separate themselves from the world to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. In the home with a family member or friend, at work with a co-worker, at play with a teammate, in the Worship Center and classrooms of our church, we tell others the gospel, provide comfort and encouragement, and share Biblical counsel with others.
Nothing pleases God more than servants who disregard the pleasures of the world and step out of their comfort zone to share the gospel of Christ.
It’s pretty amazing when you stop and think about it. The plan God instituted for evangelism hasn’t been altered, suspended, or discontinued in almost 2,000 years. Although methods have changed, the basic approach remains the same. The Holy Spirit does the separating and those who are separated step up and take action.
I am thankful that men and women still respond to God’s call, but more workers are needed. “Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Matthew 9:38). Do you consider yourself a harvest worker? Do you consider yourself separated from the world? Are you prepared to be a harvest worker? Separate yourself from the world, be prepared and join the harvest. It probably will not appear in the local newspaper or the evening news, but heaven takes note.
