Are You One Of The Few?

2And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest”. Luke 10:2

These words of Jesus have been on my mind today. It seems like, Jesus is making the point that there is no shortage of people he wants to reach and there is no shortage of people who want to be reached by him. The shortage seems to be found in people who are willing to reach out to others for his sake.

Is it possible, that the reason why our churches are not bursting at the seams is because of us? There seems to be a sense of urgency in Christ’s words spoken here. It’s pretty mind-blowing to think he said these words over 2,000 years ago. Are they still true in our generation? Is there a sense of urgency in your heart to reach those who do not know Christ? Are you one of the few? Is there a sense of urgency in our churches as we begin to execute to plans God has given to us for 2012?

I don’t know what dreams, hopes or prayers you have for 2012, but I hope they include being one of the “few”. It seems like nothing would be more in sync with God in 2012, than to have the same sense of urgency his Son has and to make that the focus of this year.
