Verse of the Day: He Who Reaps Receives Wages

December 4, 2007


36 And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”

John 4:36-38 (NKJV)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

The reaper of a spiritual harvest receives wages – that is, fruit which brings joy. In this case, Jesus sowed by giving the message to the woman. He was about to reap because He would see the whole city saved. Also the disciples were going to reap the harvest that Christ had sown. Note the “hundredfold” wages Jesus promises in Matt. 19:27-29 (see 1 Cor. 3:6-8; 2 Cor. 5:10).
