  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

September 11, 2012 - Wanted: Laborers!

By Beatrice Northcutt

“But when [Jesus] saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest” (Matthew 9:36-38, KJV).

Jesus had gone to His own town and throughout area villages, teaching, preaching and healing. As He looked out over the multitude during a day of ministry, He was moved with compassion. He saw them as sheep who had no shepherd. There was so much work to be done, and so few to do it! Jesus’ heart was stirred as He saw spiritually needy and hungry people who had no one to minister to their needs.

What a picture of our society today! Multitudes seek answers to this world’s problems and to the spiritual hunger they have inside. But who is brave enough to go out into the harvest field and labor in the heat of secularism and world philosophy to feed them the Bread of Life? Are you? Am I?

This harvest speaks of hard, grueling work. God didn’t empower us with His Spirit to sit on comfortable pews and focus on ourselves while lost souls plunge ever closer toward eternity. We must enter the harvest field, where the backbreaking work is — or the harvest will be lost forever!

Have we won a soul for Christ this month, or this year? The harvest is white now!
