Are you a worker or a laborer?
Matthew 9:37 KJV:
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Many speak of "working for the Lord" or "working out their own soul salvation". Every Christian knows that it a real pleasure to work for the Savior! However, the problem is we cannot work hard enough for Him. In the book of Matthew, Jesus gives a vivid example of much work ready to be done but not enough "laborers" to do it. Some translations say workers while others as the ESV and the KJV say laborers. A worker does just that, work. They have a set time to start and a set time to finish the job. A worker looks to get paid for every minute they work...they work to receive. A worker can also be replaced at anytime. But a laborer knows there is no such thing as a 7-4 job, an 8-5 or a 10-6, etc. Their mindset is until completion. A laborer is concerned about what they have to give and not what they will receive. A laborer NEVER runs out of something to do because of the ripeness of the field...souls shall always need to be saved. If you are just working around
the church or doing your thing when it's a special day or program, you are not needed in this season or should I say this time of life. We cannot just show up when we feel like it or when we will be spotlighted! In order to get someone to destiny, Jesus is in need of laborers! While a worker is working to merely live, the result of a laborer is life. That's why a woman's travail time is called labor! She sticks with it until the baby is born and no one can determine that time BUT the Lord! Will you join me today and aaccept the call to advance from a day of work to a life of labor for the Lord?
