A Man Reaps What He Sows

Galatians 6:7-8

 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

 

The environment in which we live where sin is tolerated and people live for themselves then how can they wonder why they are not receiving the blessing they think they deserve?

What is sowing for God mean?

It means that the believer goes out into the world and plants seeds of the word of God into the minds of people around them. Surely many do this but how many times have you had an opportunity to speak with someone about God and you thought it wasn’t a good idea?

 Galatians 6:9-10

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

We have the mind of Christ and that means that each person deserves to be awakened to what He wants them to know, then they decide for themselves if this truth that they are hearing is that of the Holy Spirit.

So let us not be weary in planting the seeds among those who are perishing so that we may be the aroma of Christ, instead of the smell of death. 2 Corinthians 2:15-16

Each one of us has been appointed to step up in someone’s life and bring him or her to Christ, listen for the Holy Spirit’s prompting and allow Him to save a life from doom and everlasting destruction.

It’s A Choice

One of the questions I have for you today is:

What has God gifted you with as a task of doing to glorify His name?

You might think, well, I’m not a pastor, or an Elder, I don’t work in a church or do anything directly associated with spreading the gospel to others, how can what I do be glorifying the Lord in any way?

First of all, you are His and because you are His He gives you the tools in your everyday life to show His glory. When you do your job at any type work whether it’s at home or in your paying job you are glorifying His name by the way you conduct yourself in the presence of others and being present in their lives.

Not everyone has to be a famous preacher or writer to influence the people around you, God has given you the unique privilege to stand on His behalf to do what He has put in front of you this day. It’s so simple just be obedient to His will and He will direct your path in what you do each day.

2 Corinthians 9:13

13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.

God has a personal journey for each of us, not everyone’s journey will be the same, and He places you where He needs you to flourish for His glory. Maybe sitting in an office isn’t where you thought you would end up but God needs you there for a reason. Instead of thinking about how it’s a torture, think of it as a mission field ready and ripe for what he can do right there.

2 Corinthians 9:8

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 So I say to you, hold on to what God has given you and use that gift that’s what separates you from others that unique gift God can use in this world to bring others closer to His one and only Son.

Shalom

The True Light

There was a popular fiction movie in 1990 called “Ghost” a man spends most of the movie trying to solve his murder and bring the men that did it to justice with the help of a psychic and at the end of the movie everything seems to be resolved, the psychic tells the Ghost to “go into the light”; the audience assumes the character is going into heaven.

Here’s the Truth

The fact is no one gets into the Kingdom of God for being good or nice or even if you saved a million people. You get into the Kingdom of God by your relationship with Jesus.

This is what Jesus says:

John 3:3

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

                                                                                 and

John 3:5

 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.

Plain and simple

You must be Born Again to see the Kingdom of God, there is no one on earth including your self that can save you, only Christ through His shed blood on the cross, and death and resurrection could do this.

 Mark 10:15 

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

 If you feel frustrated and angry because you are reading this then this is doing it’s job because the point is for you to think long term about your eternal life. Your physical life is short but your spiritual life is eternal. God sees all you do good and bad and at the end of your life you are accountable for everything done even in secret.

Yes in secret, that means what you do that you think you can hide is not hidden from God. Listen all I am saying is this, you may be spending your life enjoying it and that’s what God wants us to do, but if you don’t have a relationship or not put God at the center of your life you aren’t going to see the true Kingdom. of God, not because I say but because Jesus says.

Matthew 7:13-14

The Narrow and Wide Gates

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

 Whoever has said I will go to Heaven and not believed in Jesus isn’t going to the true light. All else is false, follow Jesus It’s simple, repent of your sins and ask Jesus into your life, He will lead and guide you to the true light, His light and watch what he can do through your prayers and His promises to you. You will have trials but you will always have His peace and light. 

John 8:12

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world.

Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
