2 Samuel 23:11-12. Next in command was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite. When the Philistines assembled at Lehi, where there happened to be an area of a field that was full of lentils, the army retreated before the Philistines. But he made a stand in the middle of that area. He defended it and defeated the Philistines; the Lord gave them a great victory.

Our churches are in neighborhoods full of lost souls. Some were in church as children but were taken away by the world. We have just sat in our pews and surrendered to their loss. Our question us will we continue to be like a retreating army or like Shammah who stood and defended the harvest? We need to fight for the lost in our neighborhoods. We start with prayer then we go to them, extend the hand of friendship, offer to bring them with us, encourage them, feed them, do whatever it takes to bring them into the fellowship of God’s family. It takes time and effort on our part. It’s what Jesus told us to do. By going into the world to make disciples it is not enough for us to give money to foreign mission. We must start in our neighborhoods. The harvest is ripe for the picking. Will we bring the harvest in for the glory of God or allow the enemy yo plunder the harvest?
