Look On The Fields

Look On The Fields by Keith Cook

Today there are needs all around us.

"Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." John 4:34, 35

Never before in the history of the world has mankind been faced with such a godless society. Terrorism and materialism rule side by side.

Morals and decency have been thrown aside for prosperity and pleasures. Young people and adults go from one fad to the next looking for happiness.

The mood is set for a tremendous spiritual awakening.

Yet the hour is late for so many people. Before this day is over nearly 150,000 people will pass from this life into a Christless eternity. That is over 1 million people a week.

The fields are ripe for a move of God.

The fields are really ripe for harvest. Never before in the history of the world have more people been coming into God's kingdom. God is using wars and famine to move God honoring troops and social teams into place to reach cultures never before open to the message of Christ.

The collapse of communism in Eastern Europe has been used by God to move professionals, who are Christian, into key places of leadership and training. This is also beginning to happen in the Middle East.

Yet, at the same time God moves, so does the Devil. Sects and cults are also moving to meet human needs. Recently, I saw an ad where one cult was offering free airfare and education to any leaders from Eastern Europe, who wanted to be trained in business and economics. The Muslims are trying to buy converts all over Africa.

When the good governments see the trouble that their people are having they respond with social programs to help. It is time for the people of God to do the same. My friends, someone is dying and going to hell, can't we see that now is the time to do more and try more than ever before to reach them.

While we take aid around the world and across the street, let us also take the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Share our faith and practice modern day Christianity. The world is waiting to see what Christians are made of. Let the redeemed of the Lord get out into the fields of service. These is still time.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray for boldness and courage to share about Jesus Christ. Pray for the lost that they will see their desperate need for Christ.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The follow-up of inquirers who come publicly and make decisions for Christ, write in for materials to grow in Christ, or who visit our website looking for help in following Christ. Pray for local believers, churches, parents, and friends who all will be used of God to nurture each and every one to maturity in Christ.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to
