The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Luke 10:2
Christ's Church exists to
introduce people to Jesus; help them become like Jesus; teach them
In John chapter 14 we find that it was the Father, living in Jesus, who was doing his work. Jesus said, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. If you love me, you will obey what I command. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations. Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.
God is not willing that anyone should perish but that all should come to repentance. We are to carry on the work that Christ began. We are to do the work of the Father, in the same way as Christ. He wants to use us to accomplish His will. God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, and He has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation.
Pray that every member of Christs Church will realize that they have been empowered to carry the Gospel to the lost. We do not labor in our own strength, but in His strength alone. Pray that each of us will see that it is only by letting Almighty God work through us that the Church can accomplish this mission. Pray that all men might know the love of God through Christ Jesus.
