Notes on the Words of Jesus starting in
Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance,"
Read John 4:27-38, Mathew 9:37
Notice that He said in Verse 32 I have food that you do not know of~
His Food was to do the will of the Father and finish His Work…
Reflect on John 4:35 Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and thencomes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
Take note that Jesus said the Harvest is Plentiful- and past ready to harvest…
In Matt. 9:36-38
"When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them…
Then He [Jesus] said to his disciples, The harvest is plentiful but the labors are few~
Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
The word used for compassion is the strongest word for pity in the Greek language describing the love that moves a person to the depths of their being.
We are commissioned to go out and do the work of an evangelist!

Is. 51:16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens,
1 Cor. 3:6 Some plant some water but God gives the increase~
Do not fear about telling others about God’s Love. You can by the Power of the Holy Spirit God has given you~
