Travel sometime to a third world country and witness for yourself the despair and the hearts of those in those countries. They are searching for something or someone to help and horrifying thing is, we have the answer but there are not enough workers for that harvest. With my wife, we have traveled extensively to the Philippines ministering the gospel. We have had the honor of leading literally hundreds of people to Jesus and yet there are so many more and we just can’t do it by ourselves. The Philippines is not the only place there are hundreds around the world and literally millions of souls searching. The harvest is huge and we need workers to help with the harvest.
I know that there will be those who will say what about our own country, we have people right here who need Jesus and to that I would respond they are absolutely right. There are thousands of people here in America that need Jesus and like in other countries there will be those who reach out to them. God calls people to go and preach the gospel where He needs them. Jesus said in the Word, Go, preach the gospel to all creation (Mk 16:15). He was talking about every human on this earth touching each and every one of them even if they did not want to hear it. People it is very important that we pick up the pace in our efforts to reach the world because one day Jesus is going to return and there will be judgement and how sad it would be that there be those who don’t go to heaven because we did not tell them.
Let me tell you if you think let someone else to it then you need to think again. Someone else has died and now it is up to you. People are all the time asking what is that God wants me to do. My response is, read the bible and you will see. I am not saying in a sarcastic way, I am saying if there are any areas in your life that need a touch from God it is in the bible. You want to know what God has for your life, Mark 16:15, Matthew 9:37 and Matthew 4:19, “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.”
The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. You don’t have to go far to find the lost because they are all around you. Whether God calls you to spread the gospel in Africa, or where ever it is you are at there is a lot to do. Will you answer the call? Will you take the challenge that God has put before you? Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (MT 29:19) There is a lot of work to do, so let’s roll up our sleeves and get started.
