GOOD NEWS FOR THE JOURNEY
John 4:34-36 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.”

PERCEPTION // What I see/hear God saying/doing:
A week ago, it was Good Friday. I remember that my grandparents believed that Good Friday was the perfect time to plant their garden. I think it somehow had to do with the moon. There is a time to plant (like now) and a time to harvest (like about 4 months from now). But Jesus seems to be reminding His disciples here that God has already planted, so stop waiting around — harvest!!!
PLAN // What I am going to do about it:
It’s a good reminder for us right now. Easter might have planted a few seeds, but actually there are people who God has planted something in some time ago and now they need to be harvested! Today I will tell someone who might be ripe for harvest about my hope in Jesus.
PRAYER // Seal the deal:
Lord, please show me the person or people that I need to talk to today about Jesus.
