Pink: praying for laborers

Thursday, October 29, 2020
    Commemoration of James Hannington, Bishop of Eastern Equatorial Africa, Martyr in Uganda, 1885
    [Jesus:] “Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.”
    —John 4:35-36 (NIV)
    It is true that [people] are praying for a worldwide revival. But it would be more timely, and more scriptural, for prayer to be made to the Lord of the harvest, that He would raise up and thrust forth laborers who would fearlessly and faithfully preach those truths which are calculated to bring about a revival.
    ... A. W. Pink (1886-1952), Eternal Punishment, Swengel, Pa. : Bible Truth Depot, 1951, Introduction (see the book)
    See also John 4:35-38; Matt. 9:35-38; Mark 16:15; Luke 10:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, call out Your people, that the world may be saved.
