He has come to manifest the victory that One wrought out on Calvary and bring it into life. I don’t know about you, but I can’t let myself off by saying, “I’ll sow and somebody else will reap in the next generation. |
I prefer the outlook of Jesus when He dealt with an impossible woman who was an adulteress and everything else, the woman of Samaria, and found in her a fruitful harvest field. When those disciples came back to speak to Him, He said, “Lift up your eyes. You say it is four months till harvest. I say that harvest is here, right there if you lift up your eyes and see it . . . by faith.” It is there! Reap it! Reap it now! That evidently was the emphasis of His message there, wasn’t it? Maybe you will not all agree with me there, but I say God has put that into me all the years of my life. It isn’t enough just to scatter the seed. The Holy Ghost does more than that and there is more implied in Him being the Power for service within me as well as the Producer of holiness.
