I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. [John 4:35]
Several years ago, I heard this verse talked about as a present day truth, & realised I had subconsciously fixed it in 1st Century Palestine! Along with the realisation that we live under an open heaven, it changed my expectation (and my experience) of people being touched by the power of the Gospel.
He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. [Luke 10:2]
It's funny how we tend to miss this instruction. I don't think this is only about Christian workers going to the 'mission fields', but about 'not yet Christians' who will gather other people in their communities.
