Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Earth or the Harvest Season

 

 

I love Cee’s Foto Challenge this week. The harvest season has very special meaning in Christendom. It speaks to revival, gathering in, hope and salvation from coming darkness. Harvest season is a time of great and fruitful labor. Jesus asked,

Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. 36 Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38 I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.” John 4:35-38 NIV

He also said,

 “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. “Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” – MA 9:37,38

Now of course when He spoke those things Jesus was not talking about wheat or pumpkins. He was speaking of a harvest of souls. People are the harvest of the church. People are the harvest of Christ. He didn’t die for riches or for fame. He didn’t rise again to prove a philosophical point. He came to rescue people broken by the world. We are each a part of his harvest if we want to be!

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Are you a part of the harvest?

  1. Amen JE – part of the harvest, and part of the throng of harvesters: those of His blood-bought adopted children whom He empowers and uses to continue the work of Christ.

    PS Love the autumn tones. We don’t see autumn tones here, but one tree this year had about a dozen reddish leaves – the best we get.
