Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 02/05/17

This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

jesus-and-woman-at-the-well-copping“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…”    (Matt. 28:19 NKJV)

We know the Lord gave His disciples a great commission to take His word and His teachings, and the Good News, into all the world, and to make more disciples, but most of us think of the harvest field as being overseas, in foreign lands, where His special disciples go, where missionaries go, where most of us never go and never will go. Yet this is not true, especially today, for the borders that need to be crossed in our time are not necessarily further than our backyard, across the fence to our neighbor, or into the next office or cubicle where we work. The harvest field is all around us, most everywhere we go. Let us be ever mindful to reach out wherever we are to those around us, for the harvest is ripe and workers are few.

May the Lord bless you to see, and to share the Good News wherever you are.
