“Then He said to His disciples, `The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.'” Matthew 9:37-38 NASB
Several weeks ago a newly married couple visited Anaheim’s Sunday evening Bible study on their return from their honeymoon. Introductions were made and it was discovered that they were members of the Lord’s church – the Youngs.
Sunday evening classes at Anaheim are covering various topics on evengelism. Conversation with the Youngs included where their regular assembly meets and what they personally do as a couple to share Jesus with those around them.
Invitation was made for them to visit the Anaheim assembly as often as they could. I also offered my assistance in helping them or their congregation in reaching out. They responded positively and have attended Anaheims last two Thursday night classes.
Last night there was much conversation after class about the evangelistic work being done at both congregations and they asked to be part of what Anaheim is doing. They also voiced interest in incorporating the Matthew 7 approach in their congregations monthly outreach efforts. They said that six of them go out into their community every third Saturday.
Fellowship with conversations about personal work, produces more active workers. When you are talking with your brethren, inquire about what the Lord is doing with them in speaking to people about Jesus. Share with them what you are asking God to empower you to do in your personal work. Commit to praying for one another’s personal work and look for opportunities to share in the work together.
As we beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into the harvest, let’s seek a keen awareness of His answers to our prayers by inquiring about it with one another.
“and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
