Matthew 9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. (KJV)

Psalms 20:9 Save, Lord: let the king hear us when we call. (KJV)

Are you a laborer?

Whether you know it or not, if you are saved, you are a laborer.

1 Corinthians 3:8-9 He who plants and he who waters are one [in importance and esteem, working toward the same purpose]; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. 9 For we are God’s fellow workers [His servants working together]; you are God’s cultivated field [His garden, His vineyard], God’s building. (Amplified Bible AMP)

This decree/commandment applies to every believer.

Matthew 28:19-20 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be). ( Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)

  • You are to witness to the world.
  • You are to pray for the salvation of the lost.
  • After salvation, you are to make disciples of the Lord.
  • You are to teach believers to observe all the things the Lord has commanded.

Fulfilling this commission is a battle all its own. The enemy is fighting furiously to take as many to hell as he can deceive. This is a spiritual battle, and you need the Spirit of God to stand.

1 Peter 5:8-9 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour. 9 Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined], knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians) throughout the world. ( Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)

Force does not win the battle, for the souls of the lost. You win it by living the life that says you are not afraid of death. If you look at the lost, with the eyes of God, you will see a soul; you won’t judge a sinner.

Zechariah 4:6  Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. (KJV)

Because of your relationship with the Lord, the “new-you” can be a blessing as you live on this earth. Your testimony will change the lives of others. As a laborer, you cry out to the Lord for their salvation, and He will save. He is Elohe Tishuathi [ē-lō-hē  tish-oo-ath-ī) (God of My Salvation)      

Please agree with me as I pray:

Father, throughout my life, I have always had great respect for evangelists. I never saw myself as one, though. I’m willing to talk about You to anyone who asks. I repent for thinking that was enough. I am so sorry I thought I needed a title or permission. I got in my own way. I was reluctant, concerned about being rejected, and even a  little fearful. Thank you for correcting me. Waiting for someone to ask me, it’s not enough. What if no one asks? I got out of my way. I am no longer reluctant. You told me not to concern myself with being rejected; I should concern myself with the souls of the lost. You reminded me You have not given me a spirit it of fear, not even a little bit. Then You reminded me of what we used to say at church when we would go out canvassing. They will not seek; they must be sought. They will not come; they must be brought. They will not study; they must be taught. You have called me as a co-laborer with Christ. I have to witness as I go and as I live. My response, to life’s questions, has to be one that brings the direction and the attention to You. It’s Your command. I repent for thinking I should be a witness, as if there is a choice. I am a witness. My life is speaking because someone is watching whether I realize it or not. I have to stay in Your presence, and my life will speak of the God I serve. My life has to tell a dying world Elohe Tishuathi is here to save and You will hear them when they call…
