Luke 10:2 ” He told them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into the harvest field.’ “

When you look at the people that you come in contact with everyday, do you only see family, friends, co-workers, or acquaintances…or do you see them as a field of lost souls? Here Jesus is telling His disciples to pray for themselves and others to catch the vision of the harvest field before them. In John 4:35, He goes farther when He tells them, “Open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” It’s kind of like not being able to see the forest for the trees…the lost are all around, but we choose to indifferently turn a blind eye. But Jesus says, “Open your eyes and look!” In other words, soberly contemplate the eternal destiny of the lost souls around you…recognize you may be the only person willing to speak to them about Jesus…and finally, pray for a heart for the lost.
