Lord of Harvest

Seedtime and Harvest

The changing of the seasons is so natural to us that sometimes we hardly notice the change. Living in Iowa, however, makes it hard to miss. The corn has turned brown and the beans are drying; almost everywhere you look you see combines and grain trucks. That reminds me of a verse in Genesis 8.

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.

Jesus often talked about the harvest. Look at His words in Matthew 9:36-38:

But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

What can we do to be laborers for Christ? Do we have to don a pair of coveralls and jump on a combine to bring the harvest home?

Actually, because the harvest is truly plentiful and world-wide, we are already out in the fields! As a Christian we must remember that many times we are the only Bible that our friends and acquaintances read! What makes you happy; what gives you peace? Have you ever considered that those around you can probably answer that question better than you?

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear. 1 Peter 3:15

Pray today that God will make you a productive laborer in His harvest!

God Bless You,
