The Harvest is Ready

Moved by compassion, Jesus wanted to shepherd all of Israel.  He knew that there were many who were ready to believe.  Recognizing that, He cast a vision for his disciples-one of a ripe harvest in need of workers.  Effective leaders look for opportune moments and use clear examples to communicate their vision.  Jesus was a contagious leader who demonstrated the true characteristics of a shepherd; love, care, concern, compassion, and most of all guiding people to spiritual birth and spiritual growth.
