Jer. 8:20 The harvest is finished, and the summer is gone......

Jer. 8:20 “The harvest is finished, and the summer is gone,” the people cry, “yet we are not saved!”

There is coming a time very soon in which there will be world cry similar to this.  When Jesus comes to take the church out of the world, the world will be in dismay.  There will be an awareness that it is too late.  The harvest is done; the day of redemption has come and gone.  There will be many who will be in great agony and despair for they will know that they waited too long and were left behind.  For those who listened but never took to heart the Gospel message, there will be the haunting reality that they are not saved. 

We don’t know when that day will be.  Right now the harvest is going on.  The summer season is almost over.  There are so many things happening in the world today that point to the soon return of Christ.  There seems to be a deep anticipation in the church today that we are in the latter stages of preparation for His coming.  Much work yet needs to be done in the harvest field.

Jesus declared while He was on earth that the harvest field was ready.  He sends many out into the field and those who can’t go, He sends to their knees to pray for the harvest and the harvesters.  No one will be saved without those who pray for them and for those who go to them.  We have an enormous task ahead of us.  God is not willing that anyone would miss out on heaven and neither should we be.  Jesus sends us out into the world to proclaim salvation and to disciple those who will believe.  It is our mandate until Jesus comes.

There are so many in the world who know they are not saved and want to be saved, but don’t know how.  They need someone who will care enough to come alongside of them and show them the way of salvation.  Will you pray?  Will you go?  It is not enough for you to be saved.  You are mandated to go and help others that they too may be saved.  Will you do your part?  If you really love Jesus as you claim to do, you will.
