The Harvest is Plentiful

The fields of wheat are changing daily as the wheat ripens. It won’t be long until the combines will be rolling to harvest the crop and the trucks will be transporting the wheat to the grain elevators. It takes a lot of people to process the wheat from the fields to the elevators. Jesus used the analogy of harvest to describe the evangelism of the lost. “The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest” (Lk. 10:2).

There are many people who need to be harvested for Christ. We who have already placed our faith in Christ are the laborers. How many of us are sharing the gospel with our unsaved friends, neighbors, and family members? The spiritual harvest takes all of us. Each of us needs to be a living testimony of Christ’s life in us so that others can see how different our lives are. And we need to pray that God would give us the opportunities to share why we are different.

The spiritual harvest is hard work just like the wheat harvest is. Jesus said, “I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves” (v.3). We may face opposition for our testimony, but God will strengthen us and use us to bring people to Christ if we are willing to labor for Christ.
