You Will Always

Posted: June 25, 2010 in The Word

7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. -Galatians 6:7-10

1. You will always reap what you sow.

You. Will. Always. Reap. What. You. Sow. There is absolutely no doubt or question that you will reap what you sow. Verse 7 tells us that God will not be mocked, He will not be shaken. What you put into the ground is what you are going to get out of the ground. Too often we complain about what were getting off our tree instead of changing what seed we put in the ground.

Someone might complain about having a problem with lying or they are having tons of thoughts that are completely unpure. They might want to go pick up their Bible to help them or they might want to throw on some worship music, but by doing that they are being way too spiritual. What you need to do is to look back into your life and see where these seeds are that you’ve sown. If Lil’ Wayne is the only thing that plays from your ipod and if you are glued to MTV all day then I think I’ve found your problem. Every seed that you sow into your life will harvest.

But there is also good news to this. You will always reap what you sow. If you sow positive seeds into your life and into the lives of others, then you are going to reap a harvest that reflects that.

2. You will always reap more than you sow.

Verse 8 says that if we sow seeds to please ourself, then we will reap destrustion. Not the blues, not dissappointment, not a change of plans, you will reap destruction. It’s the small things that we continue to struggle in, and if we continue to sow into those things, the Bible tells us that we will reap destruction. Most of the time we don’t even notice these seeds we’re planting because they are so small. The only time we begin to see them is once they begin to harvest destruction in our lives. Things in people’s lives that completely control them like addictions, more than likely, started out with experimenting, and that small seed has produced destrustion in their life.

The good news to this part is that if you are faithful in the little things, and sow into the spirit, then you will reap eternal life. If you sow a little patience into your life, you’ll have more patience than you could imagine. If you reach out to others and serve them, then God will pour his blessings out into your life. You will always reap more that you sow. Be faithful in the little things.

3.You will always reap later than you sow.

Verse 9 says, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” To know and apple this verse to your life takes a great amount of faith. Paul tells us here that our reward will come in season. As much as we think that we know, God knows way more, and He knows the proper season in your life to reward you. For all we know, we might not see our reward ’til we meet Jesus face to face but it’s up to us to trust Him and to continue doing good. 

Verse 10 says, “Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” The amazing thing about Jesus is that because of what He did on the cross for you and me is that we don’t have to reap what we deserve to. Jesus sowed life, joy, grace, peace, you name it, into each of our lives on that cross and because of that we have the opportunity to sow those same things into the lives of others. Paul says in this verse “as we have opportunity.” Not if we have opportunity, as we have opportunity. Everyone has some place in their life where they can sow seeds of life into someone. So when the opportunity comes, do it, ’cause you will always reap what you sow.
