This week in our daily devotions we have been looking at sharing our faith, following on from Dennis Pethers’ message to us on Sunday.
Matthew 9 v 35 – 38
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
On Sunday Dennis reminded us that the Holy Spirit is at work in people who do not necessarily believe – the atheist and the agnostic. The person in your work place, the person who lives down your road and the person in your family. In this passage, Jesus reminds us that the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
There is nothing worse than a crop full of Wheat but there is no one to harvest it – the crop will eventually die. Will we join Jesus on His mission today?
Let us, at the end of this week, commit to God that we will share our faith and trust Him to help us and give us the words to say.
