You know from where that phrase comes. Jesus in Matthew 9:37 says this: “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few …” If you have been a Christian for some time you might have heard that and you know that Jesus is talking about the need for many people to hear the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ … the need for them to know that Jesus is the Saviour of the World and the Lord of the Universe. As a Christian and a pastor, of course I know that too. However, this gives an interestingly new light two weeks ago.
In our small group, we have a family who fled from his home country for fear of persecution because he had became a Christian. John became a Christian after investigating the sacred book of his previous religion and realising that it was not a religion of peace and love. He encountered Jesus Christ through checking out the Bible and realising that He is the answer to everything. Indeed, having someone like him in any Christian group will definitely inspire you to take your faith seriously.
