Daily Lift – April 23rd, 2018

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 (John 4:35).

I just went along, but I didn’t enjoy it. It was
when my parents got invitations to pick corn
from fields at harvest time. I hated the bugs, the
heat, and (yes) the work. But I liked the corn.

Jesus told His followers that the fields around
were “white for harvest,” showing them that there
were people who needed to know the Lord. But
it would take work to “harvest” those people.

While our world may seem to not want to
know Jesus Christ, there are still souls in need
of saving, and there are still people who are
willing to listen. The question we must answer
every day is not “Are there people who need the
Lord?” Instead, we must answer, “Am I willing
to do the work?” Are you?
