Lift up your eyes and look..
People are always eager in planting of seed and reaping of grain to calculate their gain of the harvest. But the heart of Jesus was, and still is, upon the planting of the gospel seed and the reaping of souls for the Kingdom of God.
Notice the challenge of Jesus to his disciples at the well of Jacob: “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.” (John 4:35-36 KJV) Jesus has challenged us to quit looking down at earthly matters, and instead to look up and see the souls who are ready to hear the gospel.
- Friends, the Indian fields of souls are already white: they are ready for harvest right now. A nation with 1.27 billion souls, of which 97% is in spiritual darkness, must be reached at any cost before it is too late. Remember the assurance given by our Master, both the sowers and reapers shall rejoice in eternity when they find the fruit of their labor. Together, let us sow and reap the souls in India.
