Proper 9C

You can picture it. The hurried look of an all night harvest, because the season is drawing to a close and the weather is changing. Plentiful harvest, not enough workers and equipment.

Jesus said, "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.

You and I are the Lord’s harvest. He sends out preachers to proclaim the Law to condemn us of our sin and to proclaim the Gospel harvesting us into His kingdom.

But it is not the preacher, but the one who sent him. Jesus said, “The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

Hear Jesus’ loving words for you. Be harvested into His eternal kindom.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, Nebraska. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn
