There is urgency in the Spirit
God spoke through Jeremiah to the people of Israel of his willingness to give them teachers who will feed them with knowledge. The perfection of the people of God is paramount to God as He chooses a means to perfect His people in different dispensation and align them to His divine purpose. God in His infinite wisdom chooses men and empowers them to carry out His message to the world. David was eagerly ready when he prayed, “Send us around the world with the news of your saving power and your eternal plan for all humanity “. (Psalm 67:2)
A compassionate Jesus nearly broke down in tears when He came in contact with people who were relegated to the backside of life through sickness, disease, demon-possessed and paralyzed. He affectionately then commanded his disciples to direct their prayers to the Lord of Harvest that He may send forth more laborers. For the laborers are few but the harvest is plenty. (Matthew 9:37).
The phrase “send forth” in the Greek alludes to an “urgent dispersion of seeds in the field”. It connotes to the “act of excretion” where an individual is hasty to bring something out of the body. Jesus Christ weighed the propensity of the work to be done in the field but the deficiency of labors in the field. The heartbeat of Jesus was to see people being empowered to go around the regions of Israel to preach the word. The level of pain in the tents of people signaled that there should be a lot of people preaching the word. It comes as no surprise that Jesus sent forth his disciples to preach the kingdom and heal the sick. (Matthew 10:7)
When Jesus ascended up on high, He gave gifts to men to illustrate how he wanted the gospel to be preached.
