Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. John 4:35 KJV
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 9:37-38 KJV
My dog is a rock. Plain and simple. One night, I was putting Skye to bed, and the latch on her crate was broken. So, I improvised. I shut the crate door and put my laundry basket in front of the crate. Now, Skye is a BIG dog. She’s a pit bull black Labrador mix. She could have EASILY nudged open the door at any time and get the zoomies all over my bed. But she didn’t. Skye didn’t realize the power she had.
Aren’t we just like that sometimes? We accepted Christ as our Savior, we gave our lives to him... then what? What do we do with the power that is given to us? The power to lead people to Christ, comfort the hurt and broken hearted? I know I’ve never done that kind of thing. I mean, sure. I’ve shown sympathy, but I’ve never really helped to the best of my ability. We Christians all need to work on that.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for allowing us to come to you with our prayers and praises. Help us to learn to use the Power we’re given to help seek and to save the lost. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
