HARVEST TIME



Fall is here in most parts of America and other places in the world. Here in my locale there are beautiful changing colors. Harvest is a time when farmers "harvest" their crops as well.

In this world there is a spiritual harvest waiting too. Souls that do not know Jesus as their savior, ripe for the "picking". Being a certain denomination is not the key to heaven nor is the act of baptism. Many people are thinking simply joining a church is all they need to do. Sad to say there may be many surprises in heaven.

It is our job as believers to share Jesus' love and how to know Him with those we come in contact with daily. This does not mean we have to go preach on a street corner but we should be ready to give an answer for the reason of hope that is in us. 1 Peter 3:15(ESV) says 'but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.'

Also to remember to not be ashamed. Mark 8:38(NIV) reminds us 'If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
Luke 10:3(NIV) says 'Go! I am sending you out as lambs among wolves.'

Matthew 9:37-38 (HCSB) says 'Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest."' John 4:35 further says the "fields are ripe for the harvest.' 

Are you doing your part to help others come to know Jesus? Could you maybe be one of those harvest workers? 

PRAYER: Here it is the fall season but it is always the "harvest" season in your kingdom. I am one of your workers to help gather more people for the heavenly kingdom. That is a huge responsibility. Help me not neglect sharing your love and how to know you with others I may come in contact with each day. In Jesus' name. Amen.
