People love to pass the buck or as Freddie Printz aptly put it, “That’s not my job man.” The Lord commissioned the Apostles to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you …” The Apostles have all gone to be with the Lord, so whose job is that now? Must be the Pastor’s, that’s not my job man! How many farmers do you know that do all the work on the farm by themselves? Do they plow, sow, water, weed ’em, and reap all alone? No, they hire hands to help and especially at harvest time, the laborers reap that which they haven’t sown. Jesus said to His disciples, “Lift your eyes and look at the fields, for they are white for harvest … one sows and another reaps. I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored, others have labored and you have entered into their labors.” Pastors are meant to teach, edify, and build up the body that the body may get to work and start bringing in the sheaves. This is the time that the buck stops here! It may not have been Freddie Printz’s job, but it is ours. So sharpen your sickles and let’s get to work!
