    "When [Jesus] saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion

    for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep

    having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, `The harvest

    truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord

    of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvestī" (Matthew 9:36-38).

    Do Jesusī words about a ripe harvest apply today? Where do we

    see evidence that fields are white and ready to be harvested? Is

    there a cry for holiness in this generation? With few exceptions,

    these things arenīt happening. Yet, none of these things moved

    Jesus in his time. Rather, he was moved by the sad conditions

    he saw on every side. Everywhere he looked, people were

    overwhelmed with distress. In fact, when he gazed out over

    Jerusalem, he wept over the hardness and spiritual blindness

    he saw (see Luke 19:41). Here were people headed for judgment,

    with no peace, only fear and depression.

    Jesus actually gives us a picture of what the last days will look

    like. "There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars;

    and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity ... menīs

    hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things

    which are coming on the earth" (Luke 21:25-26). In short, Jesus

    is describing here the most anxious, depressed, stressed-out

    generation of all time.

    Are his prophecies happening even now, before our eyes? This

    generation is full of anxiety and worry. I hear Jesusīs words:

    "The fields are white. The harvest is plentiful." He is telling his

    church, "People are ready to hear. This is the time to believe

    for a harvest, a time for you to start reaping!"

    Christ is the Lord of the harvest and he is saying to us, "Stop

    focusing on the difficulties around you and, instead, raise your

    eyes and see that the harvest is ready." As laborers, we are

    the instruments of harvest in the Lordīs hand. God is looking

    for those who will stand before the world and proclaim, "God

    is with me! Satan canīt stop me. Just look at my life. I am

    more than a conqueror through Christ, who lives in me!"
