I was often ridiculed for keeping company with sinners, but that is where the harvest is. Look up–the fields are white; the harvest is ready. The time to reap is now!
Do not fear their faces. If they stare back at you, blankly, it is simply because they do not know.
You have been blessed with the wisdom of God, and the understanding of the Holy Spirit. Your eyes have been opened to the secrets of the Kingdom. You have been made to know and understand the deep mysteries of God. To the one who is not enlightened, well they are simply dumbfounded and don’t know how to respond.
What is there to be afraid of?
If they reject what you have to say, they are not rejecting you, but Me.
Do not be overly eager for the Kingdom.
Be a friend.
Leave the rest up to Me. I will put the right questions in their hearts. The Holy Spirit awaits with the answer within you. Your job is to look up; for the fields are white with harvest, and the time is now!
Leave the rest up to Me.
“And as he sat at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”” Matthew 9:10-13

He who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together.
