Lord of the Harvest

“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.””
Matthew 9:35-38 NIV

The heart of Build to Reach could easily be expressed through the above passage. As we look ahead to our church’s future, our desire is to align ourselves with the same heartbeat and passion that Jesus had when he entered the city.

Jesus looked out on all the people and had compassion on them. He could see that many were in need of cheering up, that the Good News of a new Kingdom was available to those who believed in Him. He cared so much for these people he spent time with them, healing those who were suffering and sick. Jesus saw many people who the Bible described as being “harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd”

Jesus puts out the call to His disciples highlighting what He saw, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few send out harvest hands, send out workers into the harvest fields”.

Maybe not everyone is called to be a shepherd, however, every one of us can be involved through our generosity in bringing in the harvest.

Through your giving to Build to Reach we can all be part of an incredible HARVEST of changed lives, church’s birthed, fresh hope and faith restored.

Our hope and prayer is that you too would have a heart for those needing Jesus in their lives, that you would be a part of this years Build to Reach giving. Through the initiatives of BTR, those precious lives that need comfort, healing and ultimately salvation would find C3 a place of safety in a harassed and hurting world, a place to call home, a place to rest, recover and grow. C3 Church is a place where each one of us can be led to green pastures and still waters by our mighty lead Shepherd - Jesus.

Love & Blessings
