“For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.” Galatians 6:8-9, Amplified
Jesus sowed His life and because of His sacrifice we are blessed with salvation, redemption, and sanctification. He is our example. Our life is a precious seed, and when we sow our lives into Jesus Christ, we reap eternal life. When we sow our lives into doing what pleases our flesh, we reap destruction and ruin.
“Don’t get weary in doing what’s right. I promise you will reap. No seed you sow is ever wasted. No prayer you’ve prayer is ever in vain. No submitting to My will ever goes unnoticed. Everything you do produces a result. You always reap more than the seed you’ve sown. The harvest is always greater than the one act of obedience to Me. Keep sowing to the Spirit. Keep doing what pleases Me. Keep siding with Me and what I want. Keep praying. Keep fasting. Keeping fighting the good fight of faith. Keep growing. Keep standing. Keep honoring those whom I have honored. Keep loving those I love. Keep being all about unity, all about love, and all about advancing My Kingdom to the farthest ends of the earth. You will reap, says the Lord.”
Yes, Lord. I receive your spoken word into my heart. Thank you. Help me to stay true to what’s right and to sow to the Spirit. I trust that I will reap because you are good. You are not a hard taskmaster. You are a good God, and I will reap. I will reap. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Genesis 8:22; Psalms 126:5-6)
