John 4:38(KJV)
38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.

There are sowers and there are reapers. Preliminary work and preparation is often done by those who never get to see the result of their labors. those who do the planting have to believe that their contribution is going to terminate in a good harvest, whether they get to experience the joy of gathering that harvest or not.

Here, however, the emphasis is reversed. The LORD Jesus tell His disciples that they are going to reap a harvest planted by someone who preceded them. He could e referring to the Old Testament workers, to John the forerunner or to Himself.

Our LORD is saying to His disciples: "I am sending you in to reap a harvest. Others ahead of you have done all the preliminary preparation. The ground work has been taken care of, All you have to do is reap the benefits of their labor."

Prophetically speaking, this verse could apply to you and me. Nearly two thousand years of planting, sowing, irrigating, weeding, hoeing, and cultivating have gone into the Gospel ministry. It is now harvest-time , time to reap all the benefits and blessings that go with the worldwide harvest of souls for the Kingdom of heaven. The early evangelists, intercessors, and soulwinners have done their part. Now it's our turn. Our part is to enter their labors and gather in the harvest they have made possible. The fields are white unto the harvest. The time is now!
