WE SHALL COME REJOICING......BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES
Updated: Oct 14, 2021
Such a beautiful comparison of bringing souls to Jesus.
We read in scripture during harvest, farmers would BRING IN THE SHEAVES, the stalks of cut or harvested grain which had been bound together with reaping...... this song I am speaking of in this blog is based on that. Psalms 126:5-6 says: " Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy."
"Bringing in the Sheaves," is an old American gospel. The lyrics were written in 1874
by Knowles Shaw. who was inspired by the chapter and verse I quoted, Psalms 126: 6. " He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him". Very soon after Knowles had written this score of music he entered the ministry. Because of his great vocal power, he was called the
" singing evangelist". Records show that from his singing and preaching the word, that nearly 20,000 souls came to the Lord. Hallelujah!.
Jesus Died for your sins.
There is often hard work in our service for the Lord, with heavy burdens and with many tears. But the end result is well worth it.
This harvest of bringing in the sheaves can be compared to souls saved through the planting seeds of the gospel. This is a broader sense is an all-Christian endeavor. As Paul states, " let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not"
Bringing in the sheaves is the result of a life lived fully for the Lord. Are we Christian believers, living that kind of life that will let us come rejoicing, bringing our sheaves
( lost souls) to Jesus? Reaping and harvesting is hard work, but as this song suggested, we will come rejoicing, bringing in our sheaves.
Brother, a sister, mamma, daddy, don't quit praying, witnessing to your lost ones, and let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER. Give up!. It will be worth it all when we see JESUS.
