A Vision for Lost People
By Greg Laurie
“You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest.”
Sometimes as Christians, we see nonbelievers as the enemy. Remember, we were all nonbelievers at one time. Nonbelievers are not the enemy; they’re under the control of the Enemy.
says that “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness
of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4 NLT).
So let’s understand that and see nonbelievers as Jesus sees them: as sheep without a shepherd. We want to see them come to believe in Jesus.
Why not set a goal for the coming year to lead 10 people to Christ? Maybe you’re thinking, “But what if I don’t meet that goal? What if I only lead three people to Christ?”
is still good. It’s better than not leading anyone to Christ. And it’s better than no goal at all. Look for opportunities to start evangelistic conversations. I think if you were to say today, “Lord, I want to lead someone to Christ this
year. Lead me to do that,” you would see results.
Would you dare to pray a prayer like that? You’ll have to leave your comfort zone, but you’ll be glad you did. One of the greatest joys
I know is seeing someone come to Jesus.
Jesus said, “You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for
harvest” (John 4:35 NLT).
Don’t just think of the world. Think of your world. Lift up your eyes in your family. There are people ready to come to Jesus. Lift up your eyes in your neighborhood.
There are people ready to come to Jesus. Lift up your eyes in your community. There are people ready to come to Jesus.
God can reach them through you.

Dear Jesus . . .
Dear Jesus (Yeshua - Hebrew):
All that I am is Yours. I surrender to You now. All that I have is Yours. I ask You to forgive me of all my
sins against you! Please wash them away with the blood that You shed for me at the cross! Nail my sin and selfishness to the cross! I repent Lord! Create in me a clean heart oh God, and renew the right spirit within me! Cast me NOT away from thy presence and
take NOT thy Holy Spirit from me! Forgive me of all my sins! I want to be covered and protected! I want to go to heaven instead of hell! I believe and speak with my mouth that You died for my sins at the cross at Calvary, and was buried. I believe that You
took my sins to hell and rose from the dead on the third day. I believe that You now sit at the right hand of my Father in Heaven.
I believe that You alone
are the Savior of the world! I believe that You are my Savior! You are the one and only true Messiah! I renounce satan and all his works and ways! I choose the “truth” and disavow satan and all his lies! I make You my Lord and Savior, Jesus the
Christ (Yehshua HaMashiach)! This is something that only You can do, so take my heart and cleanse it of all unrighteousness! Purify me and don't stop till I go to heaven to live with You forever! You are faithful! I give You my heart, mind, body, spirit and
soul! All that I have is yours! Come into my heart and live within me! I want to reflect your Spirit! I want to be like You! I was made in your image! Here I am . . . I surrender my life to You! Fill me with Your Spirit! Lead and guide and direct my path!
I ask You for your grace to be an overcomer and finish the race You have called me to run! Thank You for Your lovingkindness! Thank You for drawing me close to You! Thank You Father God! In the name above all names I pray, Yehshua (Jesus)! Amen!
1 Thess 4:14
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath
not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
