The heart of the Lord was always moved by the spiritual needs of the lost around Him. He saw them as weary and scattered, sheep without a shepherd. It was that vision and outlook He sought to convey to His disciples. The need for many to know the Shepherd was all around them; the harvest for hearing and receiving the Gospel was ripe but tragically few were speaking of Him. The laborers were few.
Are you a laborer telling those around you of the Shepherd who has come to save them, to lead them, and be their Lord? Jesus told His own to pray that God would send more laborers into the fields of harvest. Today I am praying God will send you!
Working in the fields with joy!
