Matthew 9:35-38

“Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.’”

I don’t think its a mistake that this would be the passage of scripture I read today.  This is a verse I have said over and over in my head while here in Mexico, and while at home preparing for the rip.  However, to be totally honest, it’s starting to get harder and harder to get up because we are going to bed later and later.  Today, as my alarm went off the temptation was to stay in bed.  Don’t get me wrong, this has been a great trip, and God has done some awesome things, but I am ready to see my family and sleep in my own bed.

The reality is that you don’t have to go to Mexico to play a part in bringing in the harvest.  Yes, Mexico has a great need for workers, and when they do rise up or come, they see a great harvest, but so does the place you live, especially the churches you attend.  Everyday we have the same opportunity to see a harvest.  Jesus says it is great, but the workers are few.  Will you join me in being a worker in the field?  The field includes your home, workplace, school, neighborhood, friendships, and where ever else Jesus sends you.  We can help bring in a great harvest when we allow God to use us in which ever field He places us?
