God's Global Harvest

"Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest." - John 4:35

Globally, there are more people coming to faith in Christ today than in any other point in human history. All around the world people are being ushered into the Kingdom of God like never before. Jesus said that the fields are white. The fields are the hearts of men. The fact that they are white means they are ready. Here's what that means: men and women are open and ready to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This begs the following question:  Are our eyes open and heart willing to do whatever it takes to engage in God's global harvest?

Can you identify several things that are hindering you right now from engaging cross-culturally? Give those to God in prayer.

Readiness to Join Him In His Work

"But He answered them, 'My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.'" - John 5:17

In most sports, coaches tell their players to stay on their toes because it is from that position that they can be most affective in their position on the team. This position allows them to be ready for anything that may happen. Jesus lived His life ready to join in God's mission. In John 5, some religious people were harassing Jesus because He healed a man on the Sabbath which broke the Old Testament law. Jesus replied to them that God's activity is not contingent upon days of the week but is always working to see His plan of redemption take place. Like Jesus, we must always be ready to join in God's activity even if it does not "fit" our schedule. Today, live with sensitivity to how God is working around you and seek to join Him in His activity.

Do you regularly seek to join in God's activity where you live, work, and play?
