Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

Patriotism in the Pulpit!

The Reverend John Witherspoon is a noteworthy example of a patriotic pastor who accomplished great good for our country.  He entered the University of Edinburgh in Scotland at age fourteen, graduated from a theological course of study and was licensed to preach at age twenty-two.  Reverend Witherspoon accepted an appointment as president of Princeton (College of New Jersey) in 1768.  His extensive knowledge, patriotic sentiments, and sound judgment were needed to form a new state constitution for New Jersey when the British invaded in 1776.  Who better understood the proper role of government and rulers than God's ministers in the pulpit?  Governments are instituted among men to secure our God-given rights to life, liberty, and property.  Evil-doers must be punished by "just men who rule in the fear of God." 2 Samuel 23:3 "A ruler is a minister of God to you for good...a minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that does evil." Romans 13:4  Who better understood the principles of freedom under the rule of law than those with a strong Biblical world view?  The Reverend John Witherspoon's contributions to establish good government in New Jersey led to his election as a delegate to the 2nd Continental Congress, where he voted for independence from England and dependence upon God.  He was a member of congress until 1782.  Throughout this time of honorable service,  he had been placed on the most important committees,  playing a large role in military and financial matters.  He astounded his colleagues with the versatility of his knowledge.

Pastors with extensive knowledge, patriotic sentiments and sound judgment are needed today to be actively involved in the public life of our country.  Who better than God's men with God's counsel and God's heart for His people?   The patriotic Reverend John Witherspoon is such an inspiring role model for our pastors today.
