Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
We just finished a tremendous missions conference/revival. This Tuesday, we start our church-wide soul winning again for the fall. I also think of my SS class, and the potential there. Then, we’re gearing up for what I believe can be the greatest fall in our church’s history. Again – so much potential. So many lost people that need Christ. So many lives that need restored. So much work to do! And yet, Christ has called us, His people, to be the ones to work the harvest.
This morning’s reading was encouraging as I look to the task ahead. I’m thankful – right in the middle of the verse that tells us that the disciples took the challenge, and were up to the task – it shows “The Lord working with them”. My prayer this harvest season is that we’d do the work, yet that the Lord would work with us, as we work for Him. I don’t want to be in the field in the arm of the flesh. And the encouragement is that He can and He will if we let Him.
