The souls who are ready to receive the truth are very numerous; But the laborers are few. ( Matthew 9: 37 )
There are multitude “ teachers “, priest, reverend, general overseas, but, they are few that work in Jesus’s manner. Jesus wishes for laborers, that means: Gifted hard-working people, utterly dedicated to his work; Accurate and clear in his teaching; Upright in his character and conduct; courteous and gentle in his manner – 2 Timothy 2.
Not for gentlemen, , or souls of others, what who are idle, or slave to pleasure and sin, born to consume the produce of the soil.
In all worldly concern, if there be a prospect of much gain, most men are willing to labor – Ecclesiastes 5: 10 “ Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness! ” But, if it be to save their own souls, or souls of others, what indolence, backwardness, and carelessness. While their adversary, the devil is busy going about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, and a careless soul, and especially a careless minister is his especial prey – 1 Peter 5: 8 ” Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil...”
The only hope for taking Jesus’s message to all people is in Christians multiplying their labors by training disciples to continue and expand the work ” Every father and mother should be disciplining ( teaching, nurturing ) their sons & daughters in the things of God. Every grand parent should work at developing spiritual nurture in the hearts of their grand children, as they have opportunity ( Psalm 78: 4 – 7 ).
Therefore, if just one of us could win to Christ a few people a year, and train them to do the same, all other factors being equal ( which they are not ), the results of that seed over two or three decades, would be billions of people won to Christ. We each have different gifts and callings, but to the extent that we share our Lord’s values and commitment to his cause ( 2 Timothy 2: 20 – 21 ); we will devote our time, energy, wealth and other resources to the task of reaching this world with the message of the Kingdom and practical demonstration of it power.
