Luke 10 is a passage God is using all over the world to bring in a massive harvest. Here are the principles again, as taught by an Indian church planter who is living the reality of this. (Teachings from India 4)
Jesus sent the disciples out in teams. The team consists of three people, because Jesus must go with us.
In Luke 10:2, Jesus says the harvest is plentiful.
Following the testimony of the woman at the well in John 4, the people of the town come out to see Jesus. He tells his disciples, "You say that there are still four months until the harvest is ready. Look and see, the fields are already white." Ripe grain is yellow in color. If you leave ripe grain in the sun, as it dries out it becomes white, so Jesus is saying that the harvest is over-ready. The disciples thought the village was not ready, but Jesus response was that it was past ready. Jesus is Lord of the harvest. He sends us to where the fields are ready.
Jesus found the most worthless person of her village. She was alone, unable to face the other women in the village who would not have been collecting water in the middle of the day. After her encounter with Jesus, she became bold, letting everyone know what had happened to her. She brought her whole village to the feet of Jesus.
Millions of laborers for the harvest are sitting in church. A farmer wants his laborers to be out in the fields. The harvest is ready. Are we willing to leave the comfort of the pew (or sofa) to become a laborer?
