Jesus is calling us…issuing a special invitation. Will you accept?



“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.  Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Matthew 9:35-38, NLT

Have you looked around lately? Our world is in a lot of turmoil, and people are crying out for answers. Our verse lets us know that Jesus is filled with compassion on those who are weary and suffering and needing help and hope from a Leader who can make a difference. When He said the fields are white, he meant the weary ones are ready for that Leader.

They just need someone to be willing to introduce them to Him. A simple introduction is sometimes all a person needs to find what they are looking for.

I remember when I first met my husband Tom. I was the new girl in school, and a new friend was walking around with me, introducing me to new people. Earlier in the evening, I spotted Tom on the basketball court as the players ran onto the floor. I knew who he was but didn’t think he knew who I was…and I badly wanted him to know! As we walked around the gym after the game, there he was. “Tommy, this is Brenda. Brenda, this is Tommy.”

That introduction began a relationship that has lasted a lifetime. It has brought love, joy, three sons, three daughters (in-law if I must say) and six awesome grandchildren. As I write this I’m about to leave for a football game that our oldest grandson, Trey, will play in tonight. Joy. Pure joy is what these grandchildren are. I would never have known such joy if that first introduction had not taken place.

It took that friend about 20 seconds to introduce us – 20 seconds that changed our lives forever.

Your friends and family are in need of an introduction to the One who can change their lives, as are many others all across our world. They are desperate for an introduction. Are you willing to be one who will simply say,” Marge, this is Jesus”…He already knows who you are.”
