Luke 10:2 KJV
Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
Yesterday I got my third picking of green beans from our garden. I planted a lot of green beans this year: more than anything else, because we like them and because the seed went farther than the seeds for anything else.
Picking the beans is not easy work. By the time I am done I am very sore. We also picked squash and zucchini and had to pick it all because it was getting too big.
All of this meant that Anita spent all day putting up the produce.
And I got to thinking about the harvest. When it comes ripe you have to either
• eat it up or
• put it up or you will ultimately
• give it up.
It will not keep.
So in the spiritual world, what God is doing in our lives must be responded to. We must not put off the word of God as it is preached to us. We must not ignore or otherwise procrastinate when God is doing a work in our lives.
• It will not keep.
• It will not wait.
What God is doing, He intends to do now.
Today is the day, now is the time. Respond to God today.
