Topic: Sunday AM Passage: John 4:35–4:42
Christ told his disciples that the fields of men needing the gospel were "white unto harvest". He was telling them that the time of the harvest is "now", not some time in the future. He discusses the need for workers and describes the reward the laboreres will receive. The mission of the church today has not changed. Fixing the culture is not the mission. The church doesn't preach a world view, but preaches the gospel. Through this the church reconciles people to God and Jesus Christ that produces change which causes the culture to shift. The church is to build the kingdom of God, not build a better world.
