Text: Galatians 6: 7-8. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting
The reality of life, tells us today that in order to see a better tomorrow in the future, then we must invest positively in our today.
God is not mocked, no man sows evil and expect a good as a reward.
A young man that has refused to sow the fruit of hard work, diligence would not enjoy the fruit of a good prosperity.
A man that sows sparingly, reaps sparingly the Bible says. And a man that sows generously, will reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6.
And whosoever that has sown the wind for another, shall reap the whirlwind the Bible tells us. Hosea 8:7.
Isn’t amazing on the justice and verdict of our God, rewarding every man according to the works of their hand, either good or evil.
Our Bible text also tells us that, “he that sows to his flesh, shall of his flesh, reap corruption but he that sows to the Spirit, shall reap everlasting life”.
What does it mean sowing to the flesh?
Sowing to the flesh means a lifestyle that pleases the flesh.
The Bible in Galatians 5:20-21, tells us the outcome result of a man who is sowing in the flesh. They’re; Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
A man who has persistently continued a life of immorality could contact an std or even more deadly sexual diseases that could lead to death, which becomes the reward of his immoral lifestyle.
Again let’s see what it means to sow in the Spirit.
The Bible tells us that God is a Spirit and those that worship Him must do it in Spirit and in Truth.
A spiritual seed is a complete dependence on Jesus Christ.
It is a new life in Christ Jesus, a life that pleases the Lord and not the flesh.
The outcome results of such life are; Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. (Galatians 5:22-24).
What kind of seed are you sowing?
How do you honor God with the life He has given to you?
Today God wants to receive our seed like He received the seed of Abel.
As a youth, the Lord wants you to Remember Him now while you still have the strength and time. Ecclesiastes 12.
Take a decision today, to start sowing good seeds. The type of seed that will glorify the name of God in Heaven.
As believers, and as the light of the world, let our lifestyle, our conduct, our attitudes, our dressing and everything about us, draw men to God. Matthew 5:16
