The field was not the church. Jesus said, “The field is the world.”
God is Looking for an Insider
God says, “Give me one person in the arena, and I will shake an entire city.” Put one person inside the arena, and I will topple all the odds against that one and bring the victory home. What does God want? One person in the hall is worth more than thousands on the bandstand.
In politics, we saw how Joseph is one man, but he’s in the arena. He’s worth all the others spectating and watching put together and more.
In the arena
Esther was a woman in the arena. Who is Nehemiah? One man in the hall. Who is Daniel? One man in where the action is. Who is Moses? He is one man raised as the son of the Pharaoh’s daughter for the first 40 years of his life. Paul is being schooled. Wasn’t he working to grow? That’s why he is in the arena. What arena are you in?
Some people hate their work. “I’m not game to work. I hate work.” There’s a battle, isn’t there? There’s an arena. You need to slightly ignore the comments that people not in your field make about your area. They don’t know what they’re talking about. You mustn’t feel judged by people commenting. These are the “could have, would have, should have” people. They will only tell you what you could have, would have, or should have done without being the ones to enter the arena.
What can we say to these people? You’re not in my field. I have grace for my space. There’s a different set of rules for me in this space. The area was not the church. Jesus said, “The field is the world.” In the world, the best of us grow together with the worst of us. We aren’t usually the ones who decide who the worst or the best of us are. Because sometimes you think you’re cutting down a tare when cutting down wheat. You think you’re cutting down a weed, but sorry, you’re cutting down wheat.
