The seasons are turning, and summer days are passing by and autumn takes the stage. It’s the start of cooler weather and beautiful colors throughout nature.
The Bible abounds with scripture about harvests. As we move into this beautiful time of year I place before you Jesus own words to his disciples about our harvest work in his name. Just read his words and sit with them as the seasons change and our work in his name goes on.
“We are intimately linked in this harvest work. Anyone who accepts what you do, accepts me, the One who sent you. Anyone who accepts what I do accepts my Father, who sent me. Accepting a messenger of God is as good as being God’s messenger. Accepting someone’s help is as good as giving someone help. This is a large work I’ve called you into, but don’t be overwhelmed by it. It’s best to start small. Give a cool cup of water to someone who is thirsty, for instance. The smallest act of giving or receiving makes you a true apprentice. You won’t lose out on a thing.” Matthew 10:40-42 The Message (MSG)
