Devotional: Where Is Our Mission Field
Christian Devotion about our mission field being where we are
"...Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is
indeed plentiful, but the labourers are few. So
pray to the Lord of the harvest to force out
and thrust labourers into His harvest..." - Matthew 9:37-38 (AMPC)
Jesus says here that the harvest is plentiful.
What is the Harvest? Is it large groups of people
in far away lands who have not yet heard the
gospel of Christ? Could it also be right where we
live—at the office, in the factory, the shopping
malls, in the home and with our neighbours?
The harvest can be anywhere and everywhere—even right
where we live. Where there is a harvest, this is where
our mission field is.
We have a slogan on the wall of our church as you go out
the doors, it says, "You are now entering your mission field",
which really sums it up. As we walk out of the church building,
we are entering our mission field.
Look around you, there's work to do!
The harvest is there, but labourers are few.
