"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap." Galations 6:7
Whatever we sow.. we will reap.
If we are sowing things of the flesh, we will reap corruption.
If we are sowing things of the Spirit, we will reap everlasting life.
When we sow to the flesh, we are basically promoting our own sinful, corrupt nature and that is in direct opposition to God. We will reap physical, moral and spiritual ruin.
When we sow to the Spirit, we are seeking after those things which are pure, holy and right. We are promoting Godliness and Truth. We will reap physical, moral and spiritual wholeness. Everlasting life.
If we want to sow to the Spirit, we have to equip ourselves with the right seed.
The Word of God is that seed and we have to read it, study it, treasure it, know it and share it. Luke 8 tells us that we must take the Word of God and protect it, hide it in our hearts so that it can't be snatched away.
We can't reap the things of the Spirit if we aren't planting the right seed. That is God's Word and God's Word will never let us down. If we are doing the things that He teaches in His Word, we can't fail. When God is the reason we do what we do - we can't go wrong. If we keep our eyes on Him and we are seeking after those things which are about Him, we will be sowing the right seed!
And when we are sowing the right seed, we will bear fruit. The right fruit. Good fruit. Spiritual fruit.
"By this My Father is glorified that you bear much fruit, so you will be my disciples.' John 15:8
Lord, I want to sow the things of the Spirit. Your Spirit, Lord. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom. For your Glory. Thank you for your Word. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for eternal life.
