“The Workers are few.”


I was reading through Matthew yesterday and I stumbled across chapter 9 verses 36 through 38.

Seeing the people, he felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a sheperd. Then He said to his disciples, ” The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.”

This stuck out in my mind. It also convicted me. God wants all men to repent, but who is going to tell them to? As Jesus saw the people distressed and lost, so to should we. The Lord needs workers in his vineyard. Who will go and get his lost sheep? If we don’t “feel moved” to do it, God will raise up obedient people who will feel moved. This is a very crucial issue that we really need to address. We all sing the songs how we want to serve God, so then lets serve him! Or we could take our talents and bury them in the sand, like the lazy slave in Matthew 25 (via douglas). The world is in darkness and we aren’t worrying about it at all, at least I haven’t seen it. What are your thoughts on it?

    The last part of the verse stood out for me as I read it. Maybe we need to be praying for more workers.
