Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

The Holy Spirit: The Lord of the Harvest

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 9:37-38

The Holy Spirit is the Lord of the Harvest; the harvest is His. Too often we think that the harvest is ours, but the Holy Spirit wants us to work for Him in the harvest of bringing others to Jesus. Because there are many people who are not following Jesus, the fields are white for harvest (John 4:35). When we tell people the good news of Jesus, the Holy Spirit will work in their hearts to convict them of sin. Then He will open their spiritually blinded eyes to see the gospel, and He will draw them to salvation. Will you work in the harvest today and let the Holy Spirit work through you? You can do that by sharing the gospel with someone.

Holy Spirit, I feel Your urging in my heart to be more active in evangelism. I will witness to someone today. Help me to communicate the gospel to someone. Work in the hearts of those to whom I witness.

The Holy Spirit is the Lord of the Harvest. When people believe in Jesus, the Holy Spirit regenerates their hearts (John 3:5) and places eternal life in them. But most important, since it is His harvest, He preserves the fruit by indwelling the new believers with His presence to guarantee that they receive all the blessings that the Father has promised to them.

Holy Spirit, You are Lord of the Harvest! I cannot accomplish anything without Your working through me. I yield to Your leading. Use me today, as I testify to others of my salvation. Amen.

Go Deeper: Matthew 9:35-10:26

The Holy Spirit works through you to win people to salvation.
