Daily Devotion: White Unto Harvest

Bible Reading: John 4:27-35

Key Verse: Verse 35 - “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.”

Key Words: for they are white already to harvest

Did you know the following in regard to the earth?

Area: 197 million square miles; 29.2% land, 70.8% water.

Population: 6 billion in 2000. It was 4.7 billion in 1980. It was 1.6 billion in 1900.

Languages: Over 900 million people speak Chinese; 400 million speak English; then comes Hindustani, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, German, Portuguese, Japanese, French, Italian and numerous dialects.

Economy: Population growth is rampant in most third-world nations, such as Africa, Asia, and South America which is one human cause of a poor economy in those nations. Third-world nations are those not aligned with the Western or Eastern blocs – oil dictates most countries’ economic level.

Politics: Dictatorships are the most rampant form of politics. This occurs in your Middle Eastern, African and Asian countries, which has a great impact on our mission endeavors to take God’s Word into these areas.

Religion: 1 billion people claim to be secular atheists. 780 million Muslims. 725 million Catholics. 560 million Hindus. 387 million Protestants. (This includes Baptists which are not really Protestants.) 331 million Buddhists. 325 million Confucians. 186 million Eastern Orthodox. 66 million Animists. 55 million Shintoists. 18 million Jews.

Surely the fields are white unto harvest.

Will you pray about going? Will you pray about giving financially so others can go?
