Ripe For The Harvest

Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. John 4:35

Most of Alabama's cotton crop has been harvested by now. Before it was picked and baled the fields looked like southern snow. Some call it 'white gold'.

There is another type of harvest mentioned in the word of God and that is souls. When things start to go crazy and get scary often times people finally wake up and maybe really do start to believe this 'God thing'. Often times that is what it takes to get someone to turn to the Lord.  When life is going great many have no need for God and certainly think they are 'okay' and can not get serious about this 'religious' stuff.

Believers are supposed to be out there in the 'fields' doing our part to share Jesus with others. This does not mean you have to pack up and go to Africa to minister but wherever you live make use of the time you have left on this Earth to share Jesus' love with hurting souls around you. The fields indeed are 'ripe' for the harvest.

PRAYER: Help me keep my eyes open for those who need me to share your love and give me Holy boldness to speak the truth in love at the appropriate time. In Jesus' time. Amen.
