Day 5

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Matthew 9:35-38 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Response: We are under the Lord’s compassion, and under the slowness of His anger, because it is ripe for harvest – a harvest of mercy and salvation life, a gathering up of God’s people. There is much work to do in every corner of our daily living. Whether we are in our neighborhoods, at the dining hall on campus, at the park near our workplaces – everywhere we turn we realize that we are never really alone. Until our Savior comes back, people will go about their business yearning for something better than what people currently have and do. On reading the passage, as his church, we know that He has already called each of us to be used by our God to extend the invitation to those who belong to Him. Let’s pray for more field workers who have received the true compassion to fill the deepest hunger that only our Creator can satisfy.  Let’s be faithful and alert in our petitions asking the Lord of the harvest to send workers as our response to the grace and mercy that have been given us.
