And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
There is an expression that says, ‘You become passionate about what you pray about.’ This is something that Jesus obviously knew. When He instructed His followers to pray for laborers in today’s text, He knew that it would spark passion for the lost within them. The fact of the matter was that Jesus was actually having them pray for themselves. He had just told them that He was sending them out and now He was instructing them to pray that they would go and bring the Good News of the Kingdom into the surrounding area. What’s the condition of your heart when it comes to reaching the lost? Do you have the Father’s heart for them or do you prefer not to think about them? If you will ask the Lord to give you His eyes to see them the way He does you’ll soon develop a passion to be more reaching with your Christian walk. Many people fear asking God this type of question because they feel like He might send them to some distant place to reach a native tribe of some sort. While there is a possibility that He may send you out some day, in all likelihood, He will just begin opening your eyes to the needs of the person you work alongside, or give you compassion for that family member who always seems to be down and out. He knows where you’re at as well as who He made you to be from the very beginning. By spending some time seeking Him concerning the lost, you will begin seeing yourself and your giftings through the unique way He enables you to reach out to those around you. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
