           As we launch into this New Year, I'm reminded of Matthew 9:37-38 when Jesus gave His disciples a picture of their need to reach people. I believe each church in our association needs to catch that same vision for reaching people that Jesus gave to His disciples.
           Jesus shared a vision of a world ready to be harvested for God, but a proverb of the day hindered the disciples from catching His vision. The proverb said one could not gather the harvest until four months had passed. We see Jesus sweeping His hands toward the fields and telling them the fields were ripe already for harvesting.
           Jesus wants to cast this same harvest vision before our churches in the Taylor Baptist association even today! Jesus calls us to see the people who need to be reached in our community. Mercy always begins in the eyes. You must see the need before you can meet the need. You can't care until you are aware. The Bible says, "When {the Samaritan} saw him, he felt compassion for him" (Luke 9:33).Just like the Good Samaritan, we have wounded people all around us who need Jesus. They may not have been physically bruised or beaten yet, but they have been spiritually bruised by circumstances of this lost world.
           What is necessary for us to fulfill this vision?
           Our churches should pray for God to call out more workers to be involved in ministry. God's part in the fulfillment of Christ's vision is to empower ordinary people like us for outreach and ministry
           I believe every believer in our churches should pray about their involvement in reaching hurting people with God's love. Jesus is looking for participants, not spectators. He calls or enlist us to get involved in His work of reaching people.
           I love the story about the flea and the elephant walking side-by-side over a bridge. When they had crossed over, the flea said to the elephant, "We sure did shake that thing."
           Together with God, we can bring in the harvest. Our part is praying and participating. God's part is enlisting and empowering. Let's catch the vision!
           Together we can shake the world for Christ.
