The harvest is great

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” Matthew 9:36-37, NLT.

People are hungry to know Jesus. They desperately want to see His love and His glory, but there are those that say, “If people are so hungry to know Him, why is it that everyone I encounter wants nothing to do with Him?” The truth is people are drawn to the light of God that shines through His people.

God is not the only one that resists the proud. People do too. The lost are repelled away from people who have forgotten how far God reached down to pick them up. People are looking for someone that is compassionate like Jesus, who serves with the heart of Jesus, cares about them like Jesus, and is merciful like Jesus. God didn’t call us to be mean and critical repellents, but warm and inviting people that reach out with a hand to embrace, rather than a fist to smash, or a mouth that condemns. Let God create in you a heart for the lost.

Prayer: Dear Father, I thank You for saving me and for changing me inside out. No one could do for me what You have done. Now Lord, make me a loving servant in this world. Fill my heart with compassion and an intense desire to win the lost, my neighbors, my co-workers, my family and friends. Shine in me Father brightly so all can see the loving God I serve. In Jesus Name, Amen.
