JOIN GOD’S LABOUR FORCE;
(Work With The Lord Jesus To Go After The Unsaved);
TO THE BIBLE Luke 10:2 ;
“…The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
“Where are you going?” Mr. Ballard asked Dave, his son. “Yeah, Dave; the game is about to start!” Phil, his younger brother, added.
I’m going out for evangelism, Dad. I’ll be back soon.” “But it’s about to rain; why don’t you do that tomorrow?” his mum asked with some concern in her voice.
“Mum, if the rain won’t stop the devil from taking people to hell, it shouldn’t stop me from saving them,” Dave replied.
The Lord Jesus, while on earth, went about the cities and villages teaching in their synagogues, preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and healing the sick and diseased among the people. He was moved with compassion for the multitudes as they were weary and scattered like sheep without a shepherd (Matthew 9:36).
That’s the reason He asked the disciples to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send forth more workers to reap the bountiful harvest of souls around the world. You’re that young man or woman; you’re a co-worker with the Lord. In 1 Corinthians 3:9 AMPC, Paul said, “For we are fellow workmen (joint promoters, laborers together) with and for God…”; that means every Christian is a co-labourer with God in building lives, and saving souls.
God sent His Son Jesus to save the world, and you’re a partner with Him in this project. He already granted you the grace for an effective soul-winning life, and in 2 Corinthians 6:1, He implores you not to receive that grace in vain: “We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.” The Holy Spirit is the Lord of the harvest and He lives in you today. Take advantage of His grace and power in you to be an effective witness of the resurrected Christ! Fulfil your calling every day, as a soulwinner and a soul-builder.
John 15:4-5,16; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Dear Father, I thank you for your grace and power at work in me to be effective in soul-winning. As a minister of reconciliation and steward of the mysteries of Christ, I faithfully take the light of your glorious Gospel to my world, and to the regions beyond, transforming and building lives by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
