The Workers are Few!


Luke 10:2 (NIV)

 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

We Live in a day and age where "Church" or being a "Christian" isn't going to be the "funniest" thing that you have ever done in your life. People want things that are fun, to hang out with cool people and do the things in the world that excite them... and honestly, many times those things many be the opposite of what God may want in our lives...

This is where the "Rubber meets the road!" As a Pastor I pray that God will provide the people that we need to help us keep the ministry going for years to come, that we will have more people that are always interested and engaged in working in the ministry and answering there call that God has for their lives. 

I want to give people the opportunities these desire to work in the ministry, and to serve God, the maker of the Heavens and the Earth. I feel it to be such a blessing to serve the Lord in the ministry. I don't ever want to feel like I am burning someone out, by using them in the ministry, and I never want anyone to feel this way. Is it hard to serve in the ministry, sometimes yes... Even for me. But, in the end, I know that I am right where God wants me to be and that He is preparing me for the next stage in my journey. 

I do as the scripture says in Luke 10:2, and as I pray I pray that God will send us the people to help the ministry, help me to be the Pastor HE wants me to be, and send the people to help support our people or workers so anyone ever feels "burned out". I know that the workers may be few time and time again, however I also know that the HARVEST is PLENTIFUL! 

If you Feel that God has a calling on your life, I pray that you will Answer that Call and let God use you. Be a willing vessel. We have work to do as Christians and the time is now, it's time for us to be the church. God has Blessed ECN beyond measure and I am looking forward to what God has in store, however I also know that God is needing His Children to do His work as He continues to Bless our church... Let us get excited and see what is in store! 

I am praying for you and I pray that you will remember us in prayer as well. May God Bless you. And Always, Stay Strong in the Lord!
