God Still Needs Laborers

It’s the 11th hour, and God still seeks laborers to reap His harvest!

“Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us.  Matthew 20:5-7, KJV God is calling “11th Hour” Christians to get with the program. Are you an 11th hour Christian? Are you just tried of Church as usual?  I am!

In this parable about the kingdom of God, Jesus described the last generation before His return. He described a group of people who were standing around doing nothing, people who were idle and non-productive. Jesus revealed God’s plan for these kinds of people: get to work in the vineyard!

It’s still the 11th hour and God continues to look for laborers who will go after His harvest! Jesus is still seeking workers who will work the vineyard, fish for men and reach the lost. He’s looking for idle people who are willing to start using some elbow grease, get their hands dirty and break a sweat.

Are you an 11th hour idle Christian? Have you been standing around? Wasting time? Producing little or no fruit? Doing nothing? Complaining? Why not throw caution to the wind and get busy serving God? Why not go to work in God’s vineyard? Why not be bold and share the love of God and the good news of Jesus with the lost, weary and scattered sheep in your sphere of influence?

Listen to what Jesus said, “But when He 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 harvest.'” (Matthew 9:36-38, NKJV)

I don’t know about you, but I am stirred up! I’m fired up and more passionate than ever about reaching the lost and doing our part to work with Jesus to build His Church! I want to be a faithful 11th hour laborer. I want to give the Lord 100% and do everything I can to reap His harvest and reach the precious fruit of the earth—the lost and broken—in my sphere of influence. How about you?
