God invites us to be part of his work, bringing his reign to earth as it is in heaven. God honors us by inviting us to use what he has already given us – our selves, each of us with our own life stories, interests, hobbies, skills, resources. And God is the one who actually draws people to himself. He sends us to people whom he has already prepared to receive him, and us. He sends us into a field where the harvest is already ripe and plentiful, and waiting for us – for our precious, unique selves. And then he brings in the harvest.
