35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Matt. 9:35-38)
It’s not a harvest problem. It’s a worker problem. The problem is not “the church” and all the complaints we can lodge against “the church.” The problem, dear friend, is us.
We need our eyes UP (toward Jesus, who know our needs and is more than able to supply) and OUT (toward others) so we can see our true Supply, our true Power, and then be a conduit of the Kingdom for those who are hurting. The harassed are all around. Lord, help us to see!
