THE HARVEST

Mt 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few;

Mt 9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

John 4:35 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.

2. Prayer was crucial.

“Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will

send forth labourers into his harvest.”

2. “Look on the fields”

B. HE WANTS US TO VOLUNTEER.

Eze 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

1. God is waiting for you to yield.

2. Are you willing now to say yes?
