Labor Shortage

Jesus’ words are just as true today as they were when He first uttered them. Multitudes perish for lack of the knowledge of God through faith in Christ. They are like sheep without a shepherd, with no one to care for them. On the other hand, too few Christians are either willing or able to lead others into the truth. They are pre-occupied with making a living, seeking the things of this world rather than the kingdom of God. Overseas, conditions are even worse. In almost every country, masses rush headlong into spiritual destruction, with no one to show them the way to eternal life. Compounding the crisis is the lack of qualified teachers and pastors among those who do believe in Christ. Jesus’ command rings loud and clear: “Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
