Joanne Lowe's Meditations: 'Are We Looking?'

“Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.”
John 4:35 (King James Version)
     Jesus is telling us in our Scripture verse that people are lost in their sins and they need to be saved now, not in four months.  There are also many Christians who are lonely, discouraged and hurting and they need to be encouraged.  I think if we will be honest all of us have needed to be encouraged.
     Are we looking for people who need Jesus and for people who need to be encouraged?  If so, how hard are we looking?  Being addicted to the television set has taken many people away from serving Jesus.  There are also some people who turn on the television as soon as they get up and it stays on all day.
     How sad that there are people who watch television most of the day instead of looking for those who are lost without Jesus and are hurting and discouraged.  One day, every one of us will stand before a Holy God and give an account of what we did with Jesus.  Are you serving Jesus?  If not, why aren’t you?
     Heavenly Father, I pray that You would impress upon our heart the urgency of telling people about Jesus.  May we dedicate our life, all of our time, our talents and all that we have to serve the One Who loves us so much that He died for our sins.  Help us to make a special effort to encourage our pastors.  Amen.
