Harvest for God in your heart

Friday, October 16, 2020

A man walks into a gas station and as he is checking out, the man starts talking with some of the locals. One of them asks the man if he is new around here. The man says, “yes, I am from around here. I am in the fields with my cotton. I don’t own a cotton picker, but love my electric car.” 

After he leaves everyone in agreement laughs and says, “that guy is not in the fields and he is definitely not a farmer.” The reason they all agree is that everyone heard him speak with a weird Northern California accent, had a three piece suit on and didn’t have a lick of dirt on him. 

Even though farming is much more cooperate and business, there is still a point that you can’t farm without a little dirt under your nails. 

 A lot of people think that the key to connecting in church is all about how you dress.  Although there is nothing wrong with dressing up in church, there is something much more important.  1 Samuel 16:7 ”But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”  

Point:  With God what matters is the inside. Make sure you are saved and are committed to having a harvest for God in your heart. You are saved by calling on Jesus to save you. 

Romans 10:13-  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
