Ready to Harvest
This is the time of year when sugar cane is ready for harvest. As I was driving with Taylor yesterday we saw field after field of sugar cane that looked like fields of snow. The tops were all white and that is when you know it is time to harvest. I then started to think about the verse in the bible that talks about the fields being ready to harvest. Here is John 4:35 "35 Say not ye, ‘There are yet four months and then cometh the harvest’? Behold, I say unto you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white already to harvest." Surely that when we lift our eyes here we can see that the sugar cane is ready to be harvested. However, so are the fields of lost souls. There are many who are just waiting for someone to talk to them about becoming a Christian. Maybe they are afraid, maybe they don't feel that they are good enough, maybe someone has planted a seed and they just need to have some reassurance. Are you a reaper? Are you looking for someone who needs harvesting? Are you even prepared to reap? Have you ever lead someone to the Lord? If your answer is no.......why not? Someone decided to be a reaper and help you know the living God. Someone was equipped with their Bible and their testimony of how God changed their life to help you. This year, the fields are all white ready to harvest.....are you going to reap....do you need to be reaped? Friend if you are unsaved today, do not wait another minute. It is easy, you must believe that Jesus is Lord, accept that He died to pay your penalty for sin, and the last is to confess to HIM. However, if you are saved....decide today that you are going to become a reaper.
