                 BUT THE LABOURERS ARE FEW
                                   By Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
      "But when He saw the multitudes, He was Moved with Compassion on them because they fainted and were scattered abroad as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith He unto His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest, that He will send forth labourers int His harvest." (Matt. 9: 36-38)
    This is an urgent call for PRAYER from the Lord of the Harvest Himself. Jesus Christ, the Greatest Missionary ever to walk on this ‘terra firma’ saw the multitudes are sheep having NO SHEPHERD and He was moved with Compassion toward them and preached the Gospel to them. And He healed the sick and diseased among them.
      There are several lessons we learn from this marvelous account from the Ministry of Jesus. Our  Saviour went to the cities and villages and we should do the same. He didn’t only go where there were large crowds. First, He declared the Good news of the kingdom of God. Second, He healed every sickness and disease among the people.
     Third, He was moved with COMPASSION when He saw the great NEED among  the hurting people. Fourth, He recognized the need for Pastors who would love and minister to them as He did. Fifth, the HARVEST of souls is huge. It is plenteous. There is much to be done. There is work for everyone . Sixth, the LABORERS are few. How sad that so few have a burden to help their fellowman  with such a “great salvation”. There no work shortage in the Kingdom of God. The unemployment rate is exceedingly low and JESUS CHRIST is hiring. And the wages are good!
      Seventh, the real need is for sustained, desperate, sincere and fervent PRAYER to our Father in Heaven. The GREAT NEED is for Labourers. If we will pray, He will call them and send them into His Harvest. We have Jesus’ promise on that and His WORD is true and cannot fail!
      In John’s Gospel we again encounter the powerful MESSAGE of our Lord Jesus Christ about the paramount importance of His Ministry which we have been called to continue in His absence. He stated: “As My Father hath sent Me so send I you.” (John 20:21); “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel…” (Mark 16: 15-20); “The works that I do shall ye do and greater works shall ye do the….because I go unto My Father.” (John 14: 11-14)
     He stated: “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, 36)
            Only One Life. It Will Soon Be Past; Only What’s Done For Christ Will Last!
