Matthew 20:6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing. And he said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’ They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You go into the vineyard too.’
It's End times, last days it's the eleventh hour.
You know what? Jesus is recruiting.
In a time of lockdown, job losses and unemployment, Holy Spirit is head hunting.
This is not the time to be idle. This is not the time to wait for all this to be over.
This is the time to work for the Lord.
You might say, but no church will hire me. Well that's a valid point, but here the Holy Spirit is saying, 'hey go into the vineyard too.'
You know you don't always have to have approval, funding and applause of man or systems.
Jesus is saying it might be late, BUT IT'S NOT TOO LATE to work for Me. Go into the vineyard.
There's a Go of the Gospel.
What are you waiting for?
Lockdown to be over..to get back to church as you know it? (Might never happen).
For funding or approval to do what you're called to do? (May never happen).
To have enough savings to be safe? (Is He not able to provide).
Sometimes you've just got to get out of the boat. Peter got out and walked on water when it was stormy. (slSelah: think about that.)
In this storm don't sit comfortable, safe, and inevetitabley idle. If Jesus is calling get out of the boat; inspite of the storm. Inspite of what the other disciples are doing and Go walk on water, go into the vineyard too.
Father forgive me for playing it safe. Forgive me for following the crowd, for being idle. Thank You it's not too late and I choose to respond to Your call and I say I will go, and I will work for You Jesus in Jesus name amen.
