Jesus speaks of many laborers, men reaping harvest from what others had sown. The word is being sown in many fashions, the testimony of the Samaritan woman at the well, the gossip in Galilee where Jesus had earlier turned water to wine, Jesus' own testimony, the public acknowledgements of John the Baptist and his disciples. The sowers go back even further to the efforts of the prophets and of old. When God is truly behind something important to Himself as this, the means and methods of planting and harvesting cannot be limited to human terms. Neither should we limit God in our minds in our day in what He is doing all around us in the harvest fields.
