Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Becoming Like Christ – Day 229 – Matthew 9:35-38 – Send Out Workers Into His Harvest Field- Growing As Disciples

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:35-38 (NIV)

Go Out

I have heard you say that you want to be like me. I have heard you say that you want to do what I did. I have heard you say that you want to love like I loved, serve like I served and give like I gave. Have I heard you correctly? Are these your true thoughts and feelings? Yes, you have heard me correctly. Yes, these are my true thoughts and feelings. That’s good. I had no doubt that you have said these things and that you want them to be true in your life. I just wanted to remind you of them as we discuss how I loved, served and gave. Now, I have a couple questions for you. What do you notice about me? I’m not sure what you mean. Did I sit around and wait for people to come to me? Could you be a little more specific? Yes, I can be much more specific. The world is full of people who do not know me. Did I sit around and wait for them to come to know me? No, certainly not. You went through all the towns and villages. You went out searching for people who did know you. You engaged with people so that they could come to know you. How about you? Did I sit around and wait for you to come to know me? No, you did not. You sought me out. You tracked me down. You brought people into my life so that I could come to know you. You used people to help me to come to know and love and follow and serve you. Yes, I did. Have I set before you an example to follow? Have people that have helped you to come to know me set before you an example to follow? There is no doubt about that. I understand what you are saying to me. What am I saying to you? You want me to go out. You want me to help others to come to know you. You want me to engage with others with the hope and desire and plan that they will also come to know and love and follow and serve you. Yes, I do. You are hearing me loud and clear. That’s good. Yes, it is. I will do what you ask of me. I will go out to help people to come to know you. I will allow you to use me in your harvest field. There is one more thing I would like you to do for me. What’s that? Pray that an abundance of workers will join you in my harvest field so that a multitude of people will come to follow me as their Savior and Lord. That I will also do. Doing both will be very good.

Lord, I will go out to work in your harvest field. Use me to help others to come to know and love and follow and serve you. I will also pray for workers to join me in your harvest field so a multitude of people will come to follow you as their Savior and Lord. Amen

He Had Compassion On Them

The Compassionate Life – Day 261 – Matthew 9:35-38 – He Had Compassion On Them – Growing As Disciples

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.  When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.  Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:35-38 (NIV)

Use Me

That is my prayer. That is my request. What is your prayer? What is your request? I want you to use me. How do you want me to use you? I want you to use me to bear fruit for your Kingdom. I want you to use me for your glory. That is a very good prayer. That is an excellent request. Do you believe that I will use you to bear fruit for my Kingdom and bring glory to my name? Maybe an even better question would be, “Do you believe that I am now using you for my kingdom and glory?” Do you know that I am bearing fruit for my Kingdom through your life right now? I know why those are two very good questions for me to consider at this moment. Why is that? I sometimes have my doubts. I sometimes become discouraged. I know that I am impatient. I want to see more fruit born through my life for your kingdom. I want to bring more glory to your name. Those are not wrong desires within you. However, there is something that I must remind you. What’s that? Sowing and reaping do not occur in the same season. Sometimes reaping occurs quite a while after sowing. There will be some reaping and harvesting that you will never see. Some of your efforts will bear fruit of which you will only learn about once you are in heaven with me. I see, I understand. You must not become so impatient or discouraged that you give up and quit. That would be a tragic mistake. I will never become discouraged, give up, and quit. That is very good.

I need to point something else out toy you. What’s that? You are working hard in my harvest field. Yes, I am. Why would I also ask you to pray for more workers in my harvest field? Aren’t you busy enough? That thought has crossed my mind. Think hard, why am I also asking you to pray for more workers in my harvest field? There aren’t enough workers. That is true, what else? You want others to join me in the work. Yes, I want others to join you in the work. Will you be encouraged as others join you in the work? Will you be spurred on by others joining you in the work? Will you keep on serving me as others come to work side by side with you in the work? Yes, I will. I see your point. Will you pray for others to join you to work in my harvest field? Yes, I will. That will be very good. Together you will reap a rich harvest for my kingdom. Thank you, Lord.

Lord, use me to serve in your harvest field. Help me to also pray for others to serve in your harvest field. Let there be a rich harvest for your kingdom. May there be a multitude that come to know, love, follow, and serve you. Use us for your kingdom and glory. Amen

Key Question…  How has the Lord been using you as a worker in His harvest field?

Living It Out…  Pray that the Lord will powerfully use you and a multitude of others to compassionately serve in His harvest field.

Seeing It Happen…  Have faith that the Lord will use you to serve and pray for others to serve in His harvest field.

Get Ready To Share…  Share with another person or your small group how you are serving and praying for others to serve the Lord.

Prayer To Bless Others…  May your compassion for others motivate your desire to serve the Lord in His harvest field.
