Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!
John 4:27-38 ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%204:27-38&version=NKJV )
While waiting for His disciples to do their grocery shopping, Jesus shared the Gospel with a woman of Samaria who needed direction in life. Because of His witness to her and of her subsequent witness to others, many fellow townspeople sought out the Lord Jesus. As the disciples returned with their food, they saw a mass of white-robed Samaritans flocking to Jesus. It looked like fields ripe unto harvest. (John 4)

The work of soul winning is likened in Scripture to sowing and reaping. The psalmist said, “He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him” (Psalm 126:6). The apostle Paul said, “Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart” (Galatians 6:9).
Try evangelizing as you walk around today. You never know when a word, a tract, an invitation, a Bible verse, or a sentence of testimony will become a harvest-bearing seed. The Bible says, “He who wins souls is wise” (Proverbs 11:30).
The Gospel soul winner does not simply persuade people … he sows the wonderful living seed of the Word of God.
