There are too many people sitting at the Father’s table when there’s work to be done!
Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. Matthew 9:37
About a month ago, there were more harvesters in the fields around here than you can shake a stick at. It was the time of the year for them to be so it was no surprise to see them on the roads moving from one field to another. It was cool to see the dust flying up in the air from the machinery gleaning the harvest. It was awesome to see the harvesters loading crates, old school buses, and boxes. There were plenty of workers to do the work that needed to be done.
But where are the labourers when it comes to the things of God? Where are the labourers going with Christ to knock on the doors? Where are the labourers going with Christ working in the church? Where oh, where have all of the labourers gone? I believe they have become comfortable sitting at the Father’s table. What will it take to get us busy? What will it take to get us to knock on a door? What will it take; famine? ...peril? ...disaster?
Child of God, in order to be growing with Christ you must be going with Christ!
