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. (Mat 9:35-38)
During His earthly ministry Jesus went all over Judah, even Samaria, and Galilee, teaching, healing, and ministering to hurting folks of all kinds, and fulfilling the Scriptures. He had compassion, not only as a man, but because He was GOD in the flesh, and knew the real needs of these people. While physical healing was good for the moment, everyone who was healed would die of something, for death comes to all men. The real issue, and their biggest need was for spiritual healing and reconciliation with the Father, through faith in the Messiah.
Jesus knew that everyone needs to be born again, and forgiven by faith in Him. He came to this earth, and shewed Himself to be the Messiah that the Jews had waited for. When all was fulfilled, He willingly and humbly submitted to the Father's will and went steadfast and determined to the Cross of Calvary in our place. Because of His faithfulness, and our faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on that cruel Roman cross, we have Hope. Hope in this world, and in the next, through forgiveness of our sIn, and a right relationship with GOD the Father, through GOD the Son who is the Son of GOD, and the indwelling presence of the Spirit of GOD.
Indwelt by GOD, through GOD the Holy Spirit, we are to minister as He did, to go out to the people with compassion and meet their needs as GOD directs and provides. We are His ambassadors, and are to share His love and the Gospel of the Kingdom with all who will hear. As we go, we disciple one another in His Word and in love, that all may know that we are His disciples. As we go out into the harvest, this lost and dying world, we are to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to all those around us, so that they may believe and in believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
