“In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening withhold not your hand: for you know not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.” Ecclesiastes 11:6.
Christ has commissioned us to sow the seeds of truth and to urge upon our people the importance of the work to be done by those who are living amidst the closing scenes of this earth’s history. As the words of truth are proclaimed in the highways and the byways, there is to be a revelation of the working of the Spirit of God on human hearts. Oh, how much good might be accomplished if all who have the truth, the word of life, would labor for the enlightenment of those who have it not. When the Samaritans came to Christ at the call of the Samaritan woman, Christ spoke of them to His disciples as a field of grain ready for harvesting. “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest?” He said. “Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” John 4:35. Christ abode with the Samaritans for two days, for they were hungry to hear the truth. And what busy days they were! As a result of those days of labor “many more believed because of His own word.” This was their testimony: “We have heard Him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.” Verses 41, 42. – Testimony Treasures, vol. 3, pp. 435, 436.
Questions to think about:
The harvest is plentiful and the laborers are few. Do we have a desire to help in God’s work?
Do we pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us in our spiritual work?
When Christ spoke to the Samaritan woman, why were His words so successful?
