The dynamics of discipleship (part 23)

“Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest?’ Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest.” – JOHN 4:35

The fields are certainly white for the harvest but they are also black, brown, yellow, and red – people who need Jesus.

I am afraid the media has turned most against people and because of lawlessness, many hearts have become cold to the thought of any of these thugs and protesters had a chance to be saved.

But Jesus said, “Love your enemies.”

We are in the midst of spiritual war with the powers of darkness, a battle between good and evil and it is hard to discern the truth sometimes in the darkness of war.

It is easy to hate the radical left with all of its nonsense and lawless deeds, but they are lost souls who need the love of Jesus. I confess my heart is not as soft as it was when I began this fight but the Holy Spirit in me still compels me to keep trying to love the unlovely.

My old friend Tommy Shaw, an evangelist, lawyer, and district attorney from Oklahoma was anointed to see people saved who someone already had labored as the word says and he was entering their labor. I can’t tell you the times we would go to a restaurant and the waitress would come up, and Tommy would say to them, “You have been thinking about getting saved haven’t you?” Immediately tears would run down their cheeks and they would say, “Yes!” And they would give their heart to Jesus.

“And he who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.” – JOHN 4:36-38
