Most communities at this time report that local businesses are experiencing a shortage of workers. Ask owners and managers and you will find that many are hiring. The signs are everywhere! HELP WANTED.

What is currently true in our economy has always been true in God’s economy. Our Master, the Lord Jesus Christ, said it best, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest” (Matthew 9:37-38).

  • The work is the greatest work in the world!
  • The need is everywhere!
  • The laborers are few!
  • The Lord is looking for workers who want to be used!
  • The benefits are beyond anything you could imagine!
  • The opportunity will soon be gone!

Souls hang in the balance and the gospel has the power to save. The only thing missing? HELP WANTED.

Jesus told a story in Matthew 20 about a landowner who was looking for workers…

“…he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?”

We are living in the 11th hour! Why are so many of God’s people idle?

This is the Lord’s cry: HELP WANTED.

Ask God to show you your place and determine to do your part. Begin where you are to speak to people about Christ. Carry gospel literature. Give your personal testimony to someone you meet. Invite lost people to attend a gospel meeting with you. Use your social media to share the message of Christ. But, whatever you do, do not miss this moment – it will impact eternity.

If we will concentrate on what we have to give instead of what we can get, God will take care of the rest. “Whatsoever is right I will give you.” Connect your time, your energy, your abilities, your resources to God’s work and you will forever be glad you did.
