Harvest Time

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
 --Matthew 9:35-38
This the scripture lesson for today's message.

Harvest time conveys a sense of urgency.
The harvest is valuable, the time is short, and the workers are few.

Do you have a vital, living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ that means enough to you that you want to share it with someone else?

*God doesn't always call the qualified; He calls the willing.

*Nothing is more exciting than seeing people come to Jesus.

We were challenged to effect church growth by seeing the needy, by ministering to them; by prayer and by bringing the people in through friendship, one by one.

No one is looking for a friendly church.  Everyone is looking for a friend.
