After Jesus rose from the dead He appeared to His disciples and said to them: “As the Father has seen me, I am sending you” (John 2O: 21) And in Mark 16:15 Jesus said: “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”
As head of the church, our commander and chief has left us marching orders.
This is to be a group effort. We are each to do our share. We are all to reach some people for Jesus. We are all to reach out to our own little world; our sphere of influence: our families, and friends, people we work with, etc.
These are our first responsibility. We must make every effort to reach them for Christ. After Jesus spoke to the Samaritan women at the well she left and went into the city to tell them about Jesus. As the people were returning with her to see the one she told them about. Jesus and His disciples watched them as they were coming and Jesus said to them: “Do you not say, ‘four months more then the harvest? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest” (John 4:35).
Here Jesus is saying that unlike the earthly fields, the spiritual fields are always ready for harvest. The problem is with the reapers: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Matt. 9:37-38).
