Watch The kind of Seed That You Are Sowing
Devotional message by Andy Percy Ocansey – Walk2Live
Galatians 6:8; “He who sows unto his own flesh, shall reap corruption of the flesh, but he who sows unto the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap eternal life”.
It is very important to understand what Paul means by sowing. The human life is a process of sowing, we are sowing every day by our action and in-action activities and thoughts. We sow by what we say and do and by what we are. The Spirit and the flesh can never work together or go along with each other.
To sow is to put forth something that will grow and eventually be reaped. In our daily living, we are constantly putting forth things that will grow and bring forth a harvest. Even a word uttered by us contains seeds that will land in a particular soil, grow, and produce a harvest which we shall reap. We should not think that our words and actions are without result or issue. On the contrary, all that we say and do involves the sowing of seeds.
Do you realize that you are sowing all day long? You sow when you are happy and when you are sad, when you are calm and when you are angry, when you are praising the Lord and when you are complaining. Whenever you gossip or criticize someone, you are sowing. The human life is a life of sowing, a life of putting forth things that grow and produce a harvest.
People sow whether they realize it or not and whether they intend to sow or not. You may have no intention for a certain negative thing to grow and produce a disastrous harvest. But as long as you sow, a harvest will result.
No matter what your intention may be, as long as you sow, you will reap and you will reap what you sow. We should not be surprised that we reap a certain thing, for that kind of reaping comes from that particular kind of sowing.
Sowing is living so we must be careful in our sowing; sowing causes a certain result
If we sow unto the flesh, we shall of the flesh reap corruption, but if we sow unto the Spirit, we shall reap of the Spirit eternal life. Sowing unto the flesh will always produce a harvest of corruption, whereas sowing unto the Spirit will always produce a harvest of life eternal.
Scripture Reading: Gal. 4:29; 3:2, 5, 14; John 3:6b; 7:39; 14:17; 20:22; 6:63; Rom. 8:15b; Eph. 6:17-18; 1 Thes. 5:17-19; 1 Cor. 6:17; Matt. 10:19-20
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of life. Guide our actions so that everything we sow as a result of our everyday living will yield a good harvest that will glorify your Holy name, in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
