Fw: Harvest and Thanksgiving

2 Corinthians 9:10 "He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God."
Looking for a place to spend a few minutes with the Lord this morning, I spied this field.  Frost clung to the harvested corn stalks across the large field.  I thought about a time coming when it will be "after the harvest" of human souls.  We live now in harvest time and we are thankful for all who have turned from self to the savior while there is time.  The passage from 2 Corinthians reminds us that God is the one who provides, in a natural sense and in a supernatural sense, the seed and the growth and the harvest as He provides life to us, both here and now and for eternity.
And we have the privilege of participating in the process of harvest as our lives and our actions can be used by the Lord:
2 Corinthians 9:12 "For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God."...
15 "Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!"

"Death is inevitable.  Life is a choice!"

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live."
