Harvest the Crop

As I was driving to work one morning, the brown ground was covered with white frost. A thick layer of fog hung low in the air. It looked like a huge, fluffy blanket in front of me. This reminded me of a Bible verse I had learned many years before: “Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest!” (John 4:35b, King James Version)
In this verse, Jesus talked with His followers about people who are ready to receive the Good News about Him. At that time there were many Jews who needed to learn about God’s Son. Today there are millions of people in the world who do not know about Jesus. These people are ready to learn, but there is no one to teach them.
God wants us to tell people about Jesus. Maybe you can tell your neighbors or relatives in the next town. Or maybe God will lead you to a foreign country. No matter where you live or work, God will give you opportunities to tell people how much He loves them.
Ask God to help you tell someone about Jesus today.
