In Matthew 9:38 what was the duty of the disciples? (Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”)) When things look discouraging, we should pray more, and then we should complain and fear less. Remember:
1. God is the Lord of the harvest.
2. Ministers are and should be laborers in God’s harvest.
Jeremiah 3:15 Then I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.
3. It is God’s work to send forth laborers; Christ makes ministers (see Ephesians 4:11); the office is of his appointing, the qualifications of his working, the call of his giving.
4. All that love Christ and seeing people saved, should show it by their earnest prayers to God. They must pray,
First, That God would send them forth. Here am I, send me, Isaiah 6:8.
Secondly, That He would send others forth.
Be wise today and always - pray to be sent and send others.
