Matthew 9:36 -38 "When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd. What a huge harvest!" he said to his disciples. "How few workers! On your knees and pray for harvest hands!"
KJV: Mat 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
HARVEST DAY! - It was this thought that the book Hebrews calls "the joy that was set before Him" .... - He endured the cross because "Harvest Day was coming"! Pentecost was the feast of harvest - when the Holy Spirit was outpoured and the Church was born! No wonder Jesus implored His disciples to pray for laborers! Notice who sends forth the laborers - not us - but the LORD of the harvest! It's HIS WORK and HIS KINGDOM and HIS FIELD and we are HIS LABORERS! :-)! Hallelujah!
