Matthew 9:35-38 – MULTIPLYING YOUR MINISTRY
Many of us would like to be able to do more than we are doing to serve the Lord.
As Jesus ministered, He gave us a principle that will help us see the Gospel spread to other places.
JESUS’ CONDUCT – Vs. 35
Jesus set the example. He did all that He could. He traveled. He taught. He preached. He healed.
It is important that we do all that we can to spread the good news of the Lord Jesus.
Not all of us can do all of these things, but we are responsible to do what we can.
JESUS’ COMPASSION – Vs. 36
Jesus cared about the Spiritual condition of those he saw.
They were as sheep having no shepherd.
He wanted to see them come to Himself.
We will not be effective unless we have compassion on those around us who do not know the Savior.
We must be concerned that people are dying without knowing the Savior!
JESUS’ COMMENT – Vs. 37
There is a great harvest of souls who need the Savior!
There are many that could come to Christ, but there are so few laborers.
What a tragedy!
JESUS’ COMMAND – Vs. 38
Because the harvest is great and the laborers are few, we can pray that the Lord of the Harvest would call laborers into His harvest. When we do this, we are multiplying our ministry, and working to increase the number of laborers.
