A WHITE HARVEST
As Jesus passed by near Jericho, a man cried out to him, “son of David, have mercy on me.” (Luke 18:35-43) Jesus called for the man to be brought to him, and then asked what he wanted. He said, “that I may receive my sight.” His blind eyes were immediately opened. He glorified God and followed Jesus. Everyone saw it and praised God.
Physical blindness is a tough challenge for a person to deal with. A greater problem is spiritual blindness. Just as the man in scripture looked to Jesus to “see,” so Jesus is also the answer to spiritual blindness. I am convinced most people in America are spiritually blind, and I know most in the rest of the world definitely are. The sad thing is that most don’t even know they are blind, so they certainly are not going to look to Jesus for their “sight.”
Some of them (but not all) would be open to hear about Jesus, but there is no one in their life to tell them about Him. The scripture says in Luke 10:2 (KJV) “the harvest (of souls) is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye that (the Lord) would send forth laborers into his harvest.” How many years have you been a Christian? How many souls have you harvested (led to salvation) personally over that time? I would dare to guess that for most believers the answer would be “zero.” Did not the Lord command us to “go and tell” so that they may “hear and know?”
Pray that Holy Spirit would put a passion in more believers to witness and lead people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
