Laborers, Come Forth!

Matthew 9:37-38

"Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."

Where are the WORKERS, the LABORERS in God's Kingdom? So many of us truly feel we are busy filling the roles of titled celebrities in the church. However, God is looking for fruit... fruit that remains! How many more services, convocations and conferences will we have where souls are not being saved, healed, delivered and set free???

In this time where so many are seeking prophecy and apostolic power, evangelism is dwindling away. Few truly know how to win souls, which by the way, doesn't include recycling "church folk." It's about leading people to Christ and allowing Him to do a work, completed by the Holy Spirit, that will bring glory only to God - not any man or woman.

There are many souls to be reached, but only the wise will be successful (Proverbs 11:30) in truly leading them to repentence and eternal life through Jesus Christ. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10). God is looking for those who fear and respect Him so much that they can be trusted with His power. He knows it will not be abused or used for vain glory. Is that you?

How many souls are truly converted - truly born again and filled with the Spirit of God, because of your LABOR (which doesn't include pompous talk, elaborate rituals or hosting vain fundraisers disguised as revivals)?

No title or position means anything without the power of God. His power requires acknowledgement of who He is FIRST, followed by fruit - the harvesting of souls. Change a life by yielding to God! Titles, position and everything else is vain if people are still spiritually sick and dying.

APOSTLES have no real power if they cannot save souls! The job of an Apostle is not just to build buildings but to establish and set order in the CHURCH, which is established by Christ to snatch SOULS from the Kingdom of darkness. Let's not get it twisted. No true believer is exempt, whether apostle, prophet, bishop or anything else. If ministry keeps us to busy to minister to sinners, that "ministry" is questionable.

No matter how "high" you get, the work of the EVANGELIST (ministry of reconciliation) is YOUR responsibility! ORDER IN THE CHURCH!
