Mat 9:35-38 Yahshua went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Master of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” There is much work to be done to take the message of salvation and the coming Kingdom of Yahweh to the peoples of the earth. This was true in Yahshua’s day and continues to be true today. The question to ask yourself is, ‘Am I willing to labor in Yahshua’s harvest?’ What do you do each day to take the message of salvation to the world? Do you verbally share the truth with those you meet? Do you present yourself as someone who is spiritually motivated, guided and driven? Do you invite friends, relatives, and coworkers to join you for worship services? Do you distinguish yourself as different from others by the life you live? Laboring in Yahshua’s vineyard is all about inviting others to join His body of believers. It requires a conscience, active effort to let others know about the value of your faith. This is not necessarily a verbal action. It is all about who you are and how you project yourself and how others view you. It is all about not being ashamed of being a follower of Yahshua and proclaiming His message every opportunity you have. It is all about studying and applying His example of righteous living in every facet of your life. Again, are you laboring in Yahshua’s vineyard?
