Jesus said, “Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields. That they are white unto Harvest.” John 4:35
Without planting, there is no harvest. Things have been very busy, hectic and sometimes tense here on the Hylden Farm this Spring. Rain has delayed planting, day after day, week after week. In a normal year, planting is usually completed by May 25th. Today it is June 17th, and planting is still in progress. Our family income depends on a good harvest… without planting there is no harvest.
That is how it is with Disciple Making isn’t it, no planting means no harvest? Without faithful parents, Sunday School teachers, VBS workers, godly friends, godparents and Pastors who pass along the Good News of the Gospel…planting… to children, co-workers, friends and neighbors… there is no Harvest. No joyful meeting again in Heaven, no help for the weary here on this earth.
Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all Nations.” Matthew 28:19. Today, let us go…to our children, to our neighbor, to our co-worker. Let’s do some planting… and then… let’s Harvest!
