scripture reflection

Submitted by Paula Horst, One Step Ministries


Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work.  You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest.  The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life. What joy awaits both the planter and the harvester alike!  You know the saying, ‘One plants and another harvests.’ And it’s true.  I sent you to harvest where you didn’t plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest.”  

John 4:34-38

Burdens lifted. Shame removed. Salvation. Immeasurable joy. I am His and He is mine. Set free. Unfailing love. Forgiveness. Redemption. Revelation. Renewed hope. Freedom. Life.

This is the harvest. And the harvest fields are ready and wide open.

How have you been nourished and filled with joy as you do the will of God and finish His work wherever He sends you? Let us praise the Lord of the harvest as we reflect on this very good gift that He gives.
