We Need More Workers

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Matthew 9:37

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.”


Here Jesus speaks to His disciples and tells them a truth for all time. It was true at that time, and it is true in our time. When it comes to workers in the kingdom of God here on earth, we’ll always “Need More Workers.”


As a teenager growing up in a labor town in southeastern Wisconsin, each summer I would leave the city and go for two weeks to my buddy’s farm and help their family bale hay. There were 6 boys and one girl, and they were all tough workers. They farmed about 800 acres. I’d look at the property, then look at the bales, and I’d always say, “Hey guys, WE NEED MORE WORKERS.” Somehow the work always got done with just a few of us. The truth is, God will see His work through to completion. So never feel as though God’s cutting corners because the workers are few. It’s just that it takes more than one to have a party. The work of God is the greatest party I’ve ever been invited to. I encourage you to pray as never before because, “We Need More Workers!”


Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m praying to You to send out more workers for Your Harvest field, because as You know, “We Need More Workers!” Amen

    While this application seems most obvious, I’ve somehow never connected it in quite so literal a way. I’m dealing with this directly, and your perspective helps. Thanks!
