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." Matthew 9:37,38

Many people are busy about God's work but are we truly sent to do His will?

A friend of mine brought someone for prayer the other week who was very hungry for God and had been seeking to find Him in a particular way. As she was wonderfully baptised in the Holy Spirit, speaking in new tongues, I marvelled that it had taken her so long to find this wonderful blessing. I found myself thinking of all the countless numbers who are hungry for help, for the true Answer to their problems - the harvest is plentiful!

I left that hungry soul that evening, in the vestry, worshipping God and lost in praise. There were others waiting for help.

Let us make sure we are not busying about God's work, but that we are truly fulfilling the Call for which we are sent.
