Even if the Lord is to come back soon, we are still under His directive:
“And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone” Mark 16:15 NLT
The reason is simple:
God loves us and doesn’t want anyone lost from His presence. Peter said it this way:
“…not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance…” 2 Peter 3:9 a
His direction today is to pray.
To pray to the Lord of the harvest:
“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:38
Father God, thank you for revealing your thoughts, intentions and purposes. Thank you for revealing your heart of love! Please send more workers into your harvest fields, for the harvest is indeed great, and the workers are few. Please remove the obstacles, the hindrances and blockages that are keeping your people from doing or obeying your will in this area. Bless us with the grace we need to accomplish your plan in the earth today and everyday. Help us to keep our eyes on you, Lord, and to walk in close fellowship with you, trusting that you will lead and guide us to your lost sheep.
Be glorified in the earth today Father; be glorified through your people, through all who call upon your name.
In the mighty name of Jesus…amen!
2 Peter 3:8-13 Full Passage:
“Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar, the elements will be dissolved in the fire, and the earth and its works will not be found.
“Since everything will be dissolved in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to conduct yourselves in holiness and godliness as you anticipate and hasten the coming of the day of God, when the heavens will be dissolved by fire and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with God’s promise, we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.”
