Of the many messages going around out there, I notice ever more clearly the need for this one:
“And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:35-38)
It appears the emphasis is in this order:
Go throughout all the cities.
Proclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Heal the sick
Have mercy on the condition of people.
Have compassion on those without a shepherd.
It is a big harvest in need of workers.
There you have it.
“The time promised by God has come at last! The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!” Jesus
