Just do it ... now

The harvest is now. Are we missing it? Do we keep planning ministry instead of doing it? Do we keep saying, "when I have reached this place or achieved this position, then I will be able to serve God?" We must wake up and not allow ourselves to fall into this trap. The fields are ready for harvest. People need the Lord today. How will they find the Savior, Christ Jesus, if we don't tell them?

Let's be men and women of action who go to all the nations today. For most, the nations start with our neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family. There is not better time than the present. In fact, we are not promised anything beyond the present. So, let's be about our Father's business today and every day.
"My food," said Jesus, "is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Do ou not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and ook at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, ven now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. - John 4:34-36
