Week Four: Harvest

Week Four: Harvest

Big Idea: God, the master gardener, whose ultimate goal is to produce a great harvest in and through each and every person. There is a harvest of spiritual fruit that can be developed in the life of the believer. There is also a harvest of souls that will be a result of God’s work in the individual.

THINK: If you allow God to work in your life, you can be a part of a spiritual harvest in the world that will have an eternal impact.

FEEL: God wants to develop spiritual gifts inside of you that will cause you to look more and more like Jesus Christ. It is those very developments that give you a purpose that is bigger than yourself. You can partner with God in redeeming the world.

DO: Exercise and develop the spiritual gifts you find within your life. Where these gifts can make a positive impact, get involved in ministering to the world around you. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Get plugged into the work of God.

Prayer: “God, please work in and through me to make a difference in the world. I believe you have placed seeds inside me to grow into a beautiful harvest in my life. Enable me to submit to your work in my life. May you use me to further your Kingdom on earth.”

MATTHEW 9:35-38

The Workers Are Few

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. 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.”
