Knowing and Applying God's Truth to Real Life
Ask any Pastor...for that matter, ask anyone involved in the work of the ministry; "Do you have enough to keep you busy?" Contrary to some popular urban legends, "Pastors do not play spend all their week-days playing golf." This Pastor has not had the opportunity or time to play golf in years. In God's Kingdom work there are simply not enough hours, resources or people to complete everything that could be done. No wonder Jesus instructed His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to sent out laborers into His harvest."
What Truth is Revealed? This story gives us some important insight to the heart of God; Jesus was moved with compassion for the multitudes that were weary and scattered. That is what life often does to people, the circumstances of life storm on and people are over-whelmed. What a wonderful opportunity for the Church to step-in and help. "So, Lord we pray, raise up and send laborers into this great harvest!"
How Does this Apply to Me? Firstly, that I would have compassion of the multitudes of people who are weary, hopeless and in need of ministry. Too often, I am too busy. At least that is my weak excuse. So, I pray that the Lord will send laborers into the harvest--starting with me!
