He said to his disciples, “A large crop is in the fields, but there are only a few workers. Matthew 9:37 (Contemporary English Version)

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:35 am by Devotions with MYK. Come, walk with me.

   Are you ready? Ok then, “Let’s roll“. With 2.1 billion adherents, Christianity is the world’s largest religion. Christ told his apostles that, “…A ‘large’ crop is in the fields…” (emphasis is mine). This statement holds true today. He finished with, “…but there are only a few workers.”  How accurate a declaration!

   As Christians we are part of that crop, a crop of 2.1 billion. Now, that’s a crop! But without workers, that number matters not. Without those to tend the field, the crop can die off, get eaten by surrounding predators or worst yet, never blossom!

   We are both seed and worker. Seeds when we first come to the saving knowledge of Christ. We need to be tended to and feed a healthy dose of Scripture to grow. A worker of Christ supplied us with guidance.

   We then, in turn should become workers, a living testimony of the One True GOD. We should reflect His image on earth. In all aspects, we should emulate Christ-likeness. (To me, someone who is content with only allowing the way they live, become their witness, is a passive participant, a silent witness for Christ).

   The “workers are few”!!! With 2.1 billion Christians, we should have an over abundance of workers. How many of you can be considered “a passive participant, a silent witness for Christ”!?! We serve a GOD that is bold. Christ Himself flung tables around and proclaimed the Word of the Lord without fear (read Matthew 21:12 and Mark 11:15).

   For how much longer will you linger on the pew? How much longer will you find excuses “not” to be an active and verbal witness for Christ?!? Ephesians 4:11-12 reads: “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” Notice “pew warmer” is not on that list, notice that “excuse makers” is not listed; there are no cowards, “part-time Christians”, “fence walkers” or bystanders!!! We are all saints being equipped “…for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”

   We are to put in work. Not kick back and watch while our brothers and sisters do it all. And in some counties, our brothers and sisters die for this kind of work. Where are you? Where do you fit in? Are you a laborer or warrior, helping to raise an army for Christ? Or are you a benchwarmer, content with the work, pain and sometimes blood spilled by those that are active in Him?!?
