When a church becomes unproductive, what must happen? According to John 15:1-8, it needs to be pruned. Whether it be a vineyard or an apple tree, pruning brings more fruit. When it comes to people, we’d rather talk about vineyards and trees. In Luke 13:6-9 Jesus clearly focuses on the fruit. Where, do you think, represents the fruit? Where is the fruit? What makes the fruit ripe? Do you see the concept of multiplication? It is called harvest.
Jesus calls us to “Pray to the Lord of the harvest that He would send more harvest workers into His harvest.” The harvest is large, the workers are few (John 4:34-38). Is He calling you? Do you have faith to pray that dangerous prayer?
