As I read Luke 10:1-9 tonight, I begin to reflect on what our task is now that Christ has left us here on earth to continue the work that He set out to do.
What is it that Christ came to do? He came to destroy the works of the devil according to I John 3:8. The works of the devil is to steal, kill and destroy. Do you see the works of the devil at work in your life or someone you know life? If so, then you have a task to do. Jesus came to do minister grace, love, peace and a life of abundance to those who serve Him. With this in mind, we are to share the love of God with those who the devil has attacked to the point that they are left lifeless.
Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. As we encounter the lifeless, they are to gain life because of the life of Christ within us. Peace should over shadow their confused mindset as we minister to their trying situation. They will be empowered by the Holy Ghost to want to live again and experience the abundant life that is available to them through Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, as you encounter others who are going through life without hope, defeated and lifeless, be mindful of the task that we have been given for the harvest truly is great but the laborers are few. I pray that the Lord will send forth laborers into His harvest.
Pray for 60 seconds or 60 minutes in comfort
