The Working Class


Posted on September 1st, by Matt Shull in Blog. Comments Off on The Working Class

In our recession we are seeing a generation struggling to find work. We have a lack of jobs for all the workers who are eager to work. However, in the Kingdom of God we have a different problem. We have more work than we can imagine but we cannot seem to find the ‘workers’ who will get the job done.

Luke 10:2 – These were his instructions to them: “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields. (NLT)

Bill Wilson of Metro Ministries said recently, “If you’re going to plow a field do you want to use a 1000 chickens or 2 oxen?” Then he said, “Don’t be a chicken.” Many of us believers ‘chicken’ out of the Great Commission. I’m encouraging you today to not do this. You have the spirit of an ox on the inside of you. You are called to build God’s Kingdom and harvest His crop. Keep your hands to the plow and don’t look back.

We need a generation to be God’s “Working Class” and turn the Great Commission into the Great Completion. Jesus gave the commandment to disciple the world over 2,000 years ago and we have yet to fulfill this call. As each generation goes to heaven they have to explain to Jesus why they could not or would not fulfill this commission. I believe it is time for the church to embrace her first assignment and fulfill this command.

Let’s be about His business,

Matt and Alyssa Shull
