“He told them, ‘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).
Over dinner this evening, my cousin and I got on the subject of church vitality. She and I have read various books and articles on the subject, and God continues to place us on that path. God really laid a powerful truth on my cousin’s heart, and then through her, God laid this truth on mine. “Ask not what your church can do for you, ask what you can do for God.” God supplied the message, and I took the liberty of borrowing a little from John F. Kennedy.
I believe much of the conversation, around church vitality right now, needs a shift in focus. The question isn’t so much what a church needs to do for its congregation, although a church should seek to meet need wherever it is found, but rather, many congregations need to focus more on working to advance the kingdom of God. After all, what did Jesus say about the workers and the harvest? “He told them, ‘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). We are workers, servants, in fact; we are servants of the Most High! Let us then roll up our sleeves, and get to work. Mighty things will begin to happen.
