You reap what you sow!

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Galatians 6:7-8 NKJV

Dear worshipers,

As we are approaching the beginning of a new year and new decade, we are to take time to look into our "investments"…the things we sow into our lives and the lives around us.

This is particularly important given the fact that we will receive back from what we have invested.

Paul tells us that God is not mocked. God knows with perfection what you have been sowing into His Kingdom this year, and He also knows what you will be sowing in the coming year…And according to Galatians, you can’t reap something you have not sown…

What did you reap this year? Was it good? Was is it worthy? Did it last?

If you have sown to your flesh, you have probably reaped corruption. In other words, if you have sown into your own desires, ambitions, lusts, emotions, needs, fears, etc…you have probably reaped disapointments, frustrations, setbacks, hurt, drama, financial stress, or strife…

On the other hand, if you have invested in your walk with the Lord, in your understanding of who Holy Spirit is, in your character and growth, in helping those in need, in answering God’s call, in serving, praying, fasting, studying the Word and making daily sacrifices, then you should expect a harvest of growth, maturity, strength, joy, faith, abundance and peace! That’s what the Bible says when it talks about reaping everlasting life!

Most people make New Year’s resolutions…a lot of them make resolutions focused on their flesh, like losing weight for example. How about if you make a New Year’s resolution that will propel you into the fullness of what God has prepared for you? How about you don’t change so much your body, but rather you work at changing the Body?

How about using your talents, time, skills, energy and resources for something greater than you rather than for making yourself great?

I want to reap everlasting life…life on earth is too short and eternity is too long to reap anything else…How about you?

Enter into 2011 giving God your best and giving others the best! Then expect to receive an incorruptible harvest! [end]
