As believers in Jesus Christ, we aim to be good stewards of the time, talents, and treasures He has entrusted to us. Our goal is to be fruitful, so that when we meet the Lord, we will hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” 

Colossians 1:28 provides the key: 

“Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.”

Colossians 1:28, English Standard Version

The key to a plentiful harvest is generously sowing the right seeds. This concept is beautifully illustrated in Ephesians, where it describes how Christ sacrificed for the church so that He might present her to Himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle, holy and without blemish. 

Jesus, as stated in Matthew 9, is the Lord of the harvest. He entrusts us to be workers in His field, diligently sowing seeds that will yield a bountiful crop. Our role is to plant seeds of faith, love, and righteousness, trusting that God will bring the increase. 

In Jeremiah 3, the prophet reminds us that God will give us shepherds after His own heart, who will feed us with knowledge and understanding, caring for, loving, and teaching us to grow in faith. But God has also called each of us to be shepherds, to guide and nurture those around us. 

To be effective workers in God’s field, we must heed His call, listen to His warnings, and follow His instructions. Seeking His wisdom and understanding helps us grow closer to Him and mature in our faith. This maturity enables us to proclaim the gospel boldly, helping everyone in our lives become complete in Christ, mature, fully trained, and perfect in Him. 

Let us embrace our role as sowers in God’s field, diligently planting seeds that will lead to a fruitful harvest. By doing so, we honor the Lord and fulfill the mission He has entrusted to us. 

Dear Lord of the harvest, let me hear Your call to me. Let me hear Your warnings, Your instructions to me. Show me what You wish for me to have in my life and the work I must do to see those results. Humble me and reveal to me Your wisdom and Your purposes. Help me then to grow closer to You. To mature in You. To loudly proclaim who You are so that every person in my life can become complete in Christ, mature, fully trained, and perfect in You. And it is in the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
