Day 289

Today’s Reading – Matthew 10

Then he said to his disciples, “The size of the harvest is bigger than you can imagine, but there are few workers.”  Matthew 9:37 CEB

When confronted with the idea of church growth, how often has the church responded by saying, “We can’t grow there isn’t anybody else?”

The problem isn’t the size of the potential harvest.

The problem is there aren’t enough workers to take it all in.

When the body of Christ begins to take seriously the call to make new disciples, then the church will grow it ways it could never imagine.

We need to train the workers.

We need to challenge the workers.

Bu most of all, we need to send the workers into the fields.


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
