Every Christian is under orders to reach the lost. Our verse today tells us that we are to pray that the Lord of the harvest, Jesus, sends out laborers into the harvest field of precious souls.
The King James Version of the Bible says “thrust out” laborers. This is a strong word used with the idea of compelling workers to get up and go to work the field.
It is not enough to pray for others to reap the harvest of broken humanity but we are also commanded to labor ourselves. All born-again believers are called to the ministry of reconciliation.
Don’t leave this vital work to others. Witness. Testify. Reach out and share the life giving good news of the Gospel today.
Tell someone about Jesus. Let the Lord of the harvest thrust you into the harvest field filled with lost and hurting humanity. Let the Lord do for others what He has done for you.
