Sermon Recap | An Urgent Prayer Request

In this passage, Jesus sees the crowds of hopeless sinners in Israel, and their lost state evokes deep compassion in him. He responds by instructing his disciples to pray for the lost sheeps’ rescue through the sending of laborers into the harvest. Michael encouraged us to look into the world and see the crowds of desperate sinners as Christ sees them. He challenged us to feel that deep compassion towards the lost crowds that Jesus felt, motivated by the grace we have received as a result of Christ’s compassion for us, which played out on the cross. We were left with Christ’s command to pray earnestly for laborers to be sent into the harvest, confident our prayers will be answered by the Lord of the harvest.
