The Bible says that God is not mocked. We all reap what we sow in life. We can reap good or we can reap bad, either way, we reap what we sow. Many of our blessings or struggles are the result of what we sowed earlier in life and it could have been many years earlier.
Galatians 6:7,8 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
You can be a Christian and still experience death to your soul, which is your mind, will and emotions. For this reason, the Lord says to receive the Word implanted into your life which is able to save your soul. When you sow to the flesh then the corruption you reap is death to your soul. It brings you guilt, grief, destruction and corruption.
James 1:21 Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls.
When you are a Christian and you sow to the Spirit then you will reap eternal life.
Romans 8:5,6 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
Eternal life is knowing the Lord.
John 17:3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
When you sow righteousness, which is a right relationship with the Lord and the outcome is obedience to His Word through His Spirit, then you will reap steadfast love.
Hosea 10:12 Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.
When you sow righteousness in others, which is leading them to a right relationship with the Lord through His Word, then you will be called a peacemaker.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
When you are a peacemaker then you will be called a Christian and will be known as His child.
James 3:18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
His Word is sown in peace which produces His righteousness.
Romans 1:16,17 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”
Are you sowing the good Word in the lives of others?
John 4:36 Already he who reaps is receiving wages and is gathering fruit for life eternal; so that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together.
The more you sow the more you reap. Sow a little then reap a little but sow abundantly and you will reap abundantly.
