Matt. 9:37-38 He said to his disciple, “The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send out more workers for his fields.”
Can you see the harvest field? Do you know that most of the people you see around you are going to go to hell unless they come to Christ? Do you realize that the sheer number of people going to hell is so great? Does it concern you at all that hell is going to be populated with people you know and rub shoulders with daily? Do you think much about the seriousness of the matter?
We don’t preach and talk about hell much anymore. We may not actually come out and deny that it’s real, but by our actions and lack of discussion about it, we are in fact denying its realness. Hell is not a place anyone will want to be at. It is eternal torment for those who reject Christ as their Savior. It is a place of no escape and no relief. It is a place where there will be an eternal and loud cry of anguish over lost opportunities to accept Jesus. Scripture reveals it is a place of eternal hellfire and brimstone, unequaled in pain and suffering.
It should concern us that people we know are going there. There aren’t enough people who are concerned enough about them to warn them. There aren’t enough people today who are speaking up about hell and the lost soul of man. Pray and ask the Lord to raise up more voices to tell them. Ask the Lord to lay it upon the heart of more preachers and teachers of the Word to include the truthfulness about hell and the lostness of man’s soul.
Today is the day of salvation. Right now is when man has opportunity to be saved. We don’t know when the Lord is coming back or when he will shut the door on some soul’s chances to be saved. Ask the Lord today to send more workers into the harvest field.
Perhaps He is waiting for you to pray so that He may send you. And, if He does, don’t say no to His call. The souls of many are at stake.
