Summary: Jesus actually prayed for laborers to go into the field to gather the harvest of souls.


A) Surly when we look at v.36, we see our nation today!

* The moral decline of the people in America is leading speedily to the weakening and eventual

fall of our nation! * Children being born out of wedlock has increased over 500%!

* Pornography has become a 57 billion dollar a year business worldwide!

* Our annual crime bill is over 25 billion and is increasing 4 times faster than our population!

* Gambling is more than all the money spent on churches, education, medicine and cars!

B) Our divorce rate is 50% ... One out of every two marriages end in divorce!

* Our nation is the most civilized nation on earth, yet there are 50 million of our children who

receive absolutely no religious instruction!

* An assault happens every 2 minutes ... A rape every 10 minutes ... A murder every 30 minutes ...

* Homosexuals are more than ever and increasing everyday!

C) Then there is the terrible HIV or AIDS virus ... 1 out of every 3 homosexuals are carrying it!

* Murder has been legalized through abortion ... Drugs: $220 billion are spent daily on illegal

drugs, not counting prescription drugs that are being abused!

* Cocaine deaths has more than tripled since 1985! * Crack has been proved that it destroys the

mind ... 60% of all illegal drugs are used in America!

D) Marijuana, the drug that has been sought after to be legalized, comes from the hemp plant ...

* A poisonous drug that comes from its dried leaves and flowers and will kill and destroy the body!

* The only people who are against these sinful conditions are Christians!

* So what we need in America is more Christians! * Jesus said in v.37-38 .......

* The only way to win America is to win souls! * Let me give you four things .......

(1) SOUL WINNING IS A COMMAND OF GOD! * Matt. 28:19-20 “Go ye therefore, and ...”

A) “Go” in the Greek means, “depart, go forth, take a journey, walk, travel.”

* The word “teach” means: “To make disciples by teaching the Word of God.”

* Mark 16:15 “Go ye into all the world, and preach the ...” * It is the Christian’s responsibility!

* In order to stay in existence, everything must reproduce itself after its kind – Gen. 1:24 .......

* “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping

thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.” * That includes Christianity!

B) Christians are not to sit and wait for the world of unbelievers to come to us!

* The church is not to stand idly by and wait for sinners to come into the assembly!

* We are to go where they are and carry the Gospel to them!

* I don’t mean that we’re to go and partake of their evil, or compromise our Christian convictions!

* The Christian visits people to lead them to Christ, not partake of their sinful ways!

* And if we don’t go, it is a sin of disobedience!


A) If we say that we truly love Jesus, then we must put forth the effort to try and win souls!

* Why did Jesus come into this world? * 1 Tim. 1:15 “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all

acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”

* Luke 19:10 “For the Son ...” * Matt. 1:21 “... for He shall save His people ...”

* 2 Cor. 5:20 says “we are ambassadors for Christ.” * Do you know what that means?

* It means we are to represent Jesus to a lost and dying world ... We are to go out and win souls!

B) Notice the phrase in v.38, “... that He will send forth laborers into ...”

* Send forth workers, toilers ... We are to do the work that Jesus came to do!

* Jesus could have stayed or He could have sent the angels to do the job .......

* But He chose us and gave us the responsibility ... So be a soul winner!

* If we don’t do it, it won’t get done ... Show Jesus how much you love Him!

* It also shows sinners that you care about them! * Do they believe that you care about them?


A) Prov. 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”

* The Bible promises us the earthly reward of wisdom for soul winning!
