"Therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers in His Harvest."
We have been given power in the Holy Spirit and all authority to be about our Father's work. The Father's work is to save those that are lost. The Father is crazy about us and wants all of His children to know His amazing love and be changed by that love.
"And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, 'All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all the I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
-Matthew 28: 18-20
This is the great commission. After His resurrection but before He ascended into Heaven, Jesus gave His disciples and us a mission...the great mission! To spend our lives seeking out those who are lost and share with them what we have found in Jesus. This is our job...to joyfully share this great news that there is a Daddy in Heaven who loves everyone of His children and has sent a Savior to open the way back to Him. Alleluia!
Help us Lord to be about Your work. Fill us Holy Spirit with a love and passion for those that don't know Jesus. Give us the courage to step out of our comfort zone every day and reach out to those You put before us.
The harvest is ripe! So let us go with a Holy Spirit born passion for the lost!
