A Call to Reap
Is thinking crazy thoughts. I cannot lie. My train of thought is moving away from self, away from programs, away from the pretences I hide behind.
Where are these thoughts going? Love. Pure and simple, love.
Tonight I have acknowledged this need, this desire, that has been building up in my soul over the past months. I am amazed, and yet I shouldn’t be. Tonight while losing myself in some Bible study a thought was deposited in my mind.
You need to be ready. Do you still remember the Romans road? You need to be prepared.
I have a new desire, a deeply seated desire, to see souls saved.
Perhaps this surprises you. Perhaps you can’t believe that I haven’t felt that way for years. Perhaps you can’t understand how I could be a Christian for so long and yet just be saying this TODAY.
I have had the undeniably AWESOME experience of leading a soul in a prayer of salvation.
A soul. One.
I will NEVER forget that day, that girl, that conversion, nor the proof I saw later.
Where did that desire go?
I don’t know. I won’t make excuses. I don’t know.
What I do know is that now, all of the sudden, I feel this crazy, strong urge to seek out that experience.
2 Corinthians 6:1-2 We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. 2 For He says: “ In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
TODAY is the day of salvation.
I can’t look back at the things I haven’t done. I can’t look forward to the things He MIGHT have me do in the future. I have been called to be ready today.
John 4:35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.
Are the very fields in front of me white for harvest?
Luke 10:1-2 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also,[a] and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.
I want to be a laborer. I am praying that God will lead me to the harvest He has prepared and guide my with His Spirit as I answer the call to service.
Will you go with me?
