Preparing the ground

Do we still believe that God is the Lord of the harvest? If this is true, then we might look at Japan, and ask ourselves, “But where is the harvest?” Although there are small signs of increased interest in Christianity, it is still far from what we can call a great harvest! We can only trust that the Lord will bring in the harvest in His time. Our role is to be faithful labourers, preparing the ground and sowing the seed. The rest we have to leave in His hands.
