Day 35: Those whom He brings

And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. (John 10:16)

To build ever bigger barns to house one’s own wealth was called foolish by the Lord; to increase one’s capacity to gather in the harvest and make disciples is wise!

We live in the time when Jesus is determined to bring a multitude of sheep into his fold - sheep that may be new to us, but very well known and well loved by Him. We’ll find strength and grace to build if we keep in mind the goal of incorporating many precious souls into the sheepfold of the Lord. This is something worth laboring for!

Father, turn our eyes again toward the harvest fields! Give us a heart again for the lost sheep. Let the ministries of this house be anointed to gather the precious new lambs into Your fold. We are desperate to increase our capacity to gather and retain a harvest for You!
