The Harvest Fields

The Harvest Fields

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

Some Christians become weary when they hear appeals about giving to missions or evangelism. Many feel that enough is already being done. I’ve already done what I can, they say. Let someone else respond. But our attitude will change when we consider the enormity of the mission yet to be accomplished.

We should rejoice that missionaries are laboring in the field. We should also celebrate the wonderful work being done around the world through Christian media. Yet, despite these efforts, Operation World reports that more than two billion people have never even heard the name of Jesus. Some 13,000 cultures have not yet been reached with the Gospel.

Think about these staggering numbers! Billions of people and thousands of cultures have not been exposed to the Good News of Jesus Christ. Numbers like these can be overwhelming, but the Great Commission is the assignment Jesus gave to us. Every believer can play an important role.

What can you do? First, you can pray. Remember that millions are going into an eternity without ever hearing about Jesus. Pray that souls will be saved. Pray for those who labor in God’s vineyard. Pray for doors to the Gospel to be opened. Second, you can give to soul-winning ministries. And third, you can go. Maybe you only can go to the house next door, but go where God leads you and tell people about Jesus.

The fields are ready for harvest, but more laborers are needed. Be willing to give of your time, talent, and treasure so that more souls might be saved.
