SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT……It is estimated that during the life of Jesus here on earth there was an estimated world population of 200 million people. TODAY marks the moment where there is now a world population of 7 BILLION!
In Matthew 9:36-38 it says about Jesus, When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” (NLT)
With 35 times more people on earth now than when Jesus spoke those words, you gotta wonder what He is saying today! My personal opinion is that it’s time to get our eyes off ourselves and start focusing on reaching others, start becoming workers in God’s harvest. Jesus gave His life to reach the 200 million of His time AND the 7 billion of our time. Shouldn’t WE at least give OUR lives so ALL 7 BILLION PEOPLE can benefit from this great love of Jesus? Jesus did His part, I pray we do our part. It’s time to pray for harvesters and then become the answer to our own prayers…by becoming harvesters.
It’s time to get serious, about getting serious about the things of God.
