Nothing is wrong with the world. Sorry for making this statement. But the more I study Jesus and His kingdom message, the more I realized that nothing is actually wrong with world. Let us examine this statement made by the King of kings; Matthew 9: 35-38
…the Jesus said to his disciples, “the harvest truly is ripe but the harvesters or laborers are few. Pray you therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into His harvest…
According to the words of King of kings, everybody in the world is ripe or ready for harvest. They are all seeking for the kingdom. They want to part of the kingdom. The Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, scientologists, animists, politicians, prostitutes, bandits, lesbians, homosexuals, and even Christians are all seeking for the kingdom—they want to change. They are ready to change. Politicians are looking for God. Occultists are seeking for the power of God. UN Security Council is seeking for eternal peace. People everywhere are tired and sick of certain practices that is not solving their problems. They want the kingdom of God—they want to control their situations and circumstances. But there is a problem…
According to Jesus, nothing is wrong with the world (harvest) but something is wrong with the church (the harvesters). If the church cannot influence the society, the problem is not with the society but with the church. What could be wrong with the church (harvesters)? Why is the church not influencing and affecting every aspect of our society?
Friend, if you and I do not do anything to influence the world, nothing will be done. Someone has rightly said, “Evil only triumph when good men do nothing.” I think the church should stop thinking that something is wrong with world and accept their responsibility as the light of the world (Matt.5:14). Thank God for what the church has done so far but I strongly believe that the changes we are expecting to see in the world must begin in the church, and must be initiated by the church. This is our time. Thanks for understanding. Please ask questions.
