Free Fruit

Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.  Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.  For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’  I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”  John 4:35-38

Will this be my experience here in Portugal?  This past week it was certainly the case.  We worked at camp and had the joy of seeing six 17-25 year olds pray to receive salvation.  Others labored and we entered into their labor.  They sowed and we had the joy of being part of the reaping.  It’s like getting free fruit:)

  1. Isn’t neat how GOD asks us to do a work, and then HE equips us, helps us and does the work through us???? Where is there a better place to work???? Praise HIM for who HE is and all that HE does. Keep reaping!!!!! ~K~
