The Harvest Is Ready!

The Harvest Is Ready!


Isn't it time we stop pretending?

The harvest is ready!

No more slumbering!


We must reach beyond

 our walls.

Even if it takes us to homes... 

or shopping malls.


We must reach out beyond

 our church building.

And be Christ’ example

in how we’re living!


We must reach beyond

 out one "cliques."

And reach the lost,

the needy and the sick.


We must start now!

  With no delay.

As if Christ

 came today!


We're all called to be

 "fishers of men."

That others may seek the

forgiveness of sin!.


The time is short.

 Christ' coming is at hand.

We must preach the gospel

throughout the land.


The harvest is ready. 

The laborers are few.

What...  For Christ' sake... 

Are we going to do?

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
