"Jesus said to them, 'My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, "There are still four months and then comes the harvest?" Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!" John 4:34-35 NKJV
All around you are people who are starving for the Truth. There are hurting people, lost people, confused people...People who are searching...People who are empty, but they don't know why. People who feel a void, and they are trying to fill it with the wrong things and the wrong people. Will you look around today? Will you feed someone who is starving, spiritually? Jesus said, "for I was hungry and you gave Me food....inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
Matthew 25:35a,40b NKJV Look around today and offer someone some spiritual food. (Jesus is the Bread of life)
Jesus said, "I was thirsty and you gave Me drink..." Jesus is the Living Water. Will you look around today, for that person who is thirsting after hope and life, and offer them Living Water? Lift your eyes and look at the fields...You can save someone's life today, literally, if you would take the time to look...Not just with your natural eyes, but with your spiritual eyes.
Look at the person in your office, who seems to always get angry. Look at your neighbor who never says hello, and is not kind. Look at the stranger in the bank, and the woman in the supermarket. Take a look at the neighbors' kids who always get into trouble. Look at the person standing on the street corner begging for money and food. Take a look today.
We are not here to walk past the hurting and to judge the unsaved. We are here to reach out to the unsaved. We are here to share the 'Good News' and offer the hope that is in Jesus the Christ. How many people will you ignore today, as they cry out, "I'm starving for love... I'm starving for hope...I'm starving for peace...I'm starving, and I want to be filled!" How many people will you ignore today as they cry out, "I'm dying, does anybody care?"
Lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest.
The Lord is speaking today...He is looking for laborers to work in the vineyard.
"The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few." Matthew 9:37
