2 Corinthians 4:3,4 “ But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine on them.”
Matthew 9:37,38 “Then He said to His disciples, “ The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefor pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
2 Peter 3:9, “ The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”
What can you do as a believer?
1. Purpose in your heart:
i.e. Government leaders to be saved; People in your city to be saved.
2. Intercede for your unsaved family members by name. Claim their deliverance from blindness and the bondage of Satan. Pray for their full salvation in Jesus Name.
3. Ask the Lord for understanding of what your part is as one of those labourers.
