THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
It’s the “little things” that count.
Sometimes little things become BIG things!
A man was having problems with his car.
Every time he made a sharp turn, he would hear a “clunk” in the back of the car.
Finally, he took it to the mechanic shop.
A few minutes later, the mechanic came out and did a “test drive” in his car.
He came back soon, and parked the car in the repair bay.
In just a few minutes, he brought the car out, and gave the man a bill for $50.00.
The man said, “Wow. Must have been something small. Only $50.00!”
The mechanic pointed to the bill.
There was a one-line explanation.
“Blocked bowling ball from rolling in trunk.”
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
Sometimes prayer seems to be a “little thing,” and is often skipped.
When things are going well with us, we tend to leave off this valuable principle of our faith.
Then, this little thing can become a BIG thing!
Prayer is connecting with God through trust in Christ, and our faith is energized by His response.
Without prayer, we lose our connection with God in trust, and our faith is not energized!
This is why Paul encourages us to “pray without ceasing.” (1Thessalonians 5:17)
When we are in a constant attitude of prayer, our connection with God remains strong, and our faith is constantly energized.
We should pray because we are children of God, and have that special connection with our “Father.”
Gal 4:6 says, “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.”
We are instructed to pray not only for ourselves, but for others.
Pray for our leaders (1Timothy 2:2).
Pray for those who are ill, or having difficulties in their lives. (james 5:15)
Pray in order to resist temptation (Matthew 26:41).
Pray for the lost to be saved (2Corinthians 5:20)
Pray for fellow Christians to be strengthened (Ephesians 3:14-19).
And, in the Scripture above: pray for new evangelistic-minded Christians to enter the workforce!
THAT, my Christian friends is a BIG thing!
Currently there are almost 7BILLION people in the world!
Of those, approximately less than 1/4 are professing Christians.
Truly, the fields are “white already to harvest!” (John 4:35)
We need more LABORERS in the field!
Yes, that “little thing” of prayer is a BIG thing!!
