The Harvest is Ripe - Workers Are Few.

This week I took some time to celebrate YOU! I was led to the Gospel of Matthew, where Matthew recorded the following:

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matt. 9:36-38 NIV

Matthew noted how Jesus had compassion on those who did not know that God loved them and cared for them: "He had compassion on them." The original language implies Jesus had deep inner feelings for them and pitied them. There are many people who do not know the Lord. Some of them are represented in our "One Box." When I saw the response of our congregation as they placed the names and initials into the box, my heart was stirred. I thank God for a congregation that wants to reach that "one more" who needs Jesus. Thank you, church family, for your obedience. I pray that opportunities opened up for you this week. — Pastor Jim
