Jesus went around to all towns and villages bringing God’s love and compassion. His presence brought comfort, joy and healing.
3 Lessons from today’s Gospel: 3 R’s
1. Rich Harvest: pastoral ministry has a lot of challenges. There is so much to be done; work can be endlessly overwhelming. Jesus showed himself as Shepherd to the sick, outcast and troubled. Until now the harvest is plenty.
2. Readiness of the Laborers: the vineyard of the Lord needs workers. He sent initially only Twelve. We need to pray for more. The harvest will never be reaped unless there are reapers. Jesus will need every hand, every heart, every feet. Our willingness will matter.
3. Reach Out: there is a world waiting for the good news. A Christian should be someone in whom Christ lives again. We need a Christ-like heart to become bearers of faith; bearers of hope and bearers of love today.
