Scripture reading for August 22nd: Galatians 6, Psalm 18, Proverbs 14
Key Scriptures: Galatians 6:7-10 “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he 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. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
It is easy to get discouraged in the culture and world we live in. It was no different in Paul’s day. Believers must not tire of sowing the Gospel message and living in the Spirit and reflecting His fruit. It may appear that no progress is being made, but it is a work of faith and love. If we continue to sow, and not give up, we will reap! This promise made by God our Father.
Faith Confession: I will continue to live by the Holy Spirit and allow Him to produce the sweet fruit of His presence in my life. I know that what I sow, that I will reap! Nothing is too hard for God!
Proverbs 14:14 “The backslider in heart will be filled with the fruit of his ways, and a good man will be filled with the fruit of his ways.”
Scripture reading for August 22nd: Psalm 115-118, Galatians 6
Key Scriptures: Galatians 6:7-10 “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he 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. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
Paul encouraged believers to continue to do good works. This was not to earn salvation, but to insure their reward. He taught them the spiritual law of sowing and reaping. What is sowed is what will be reaped. What is sowed will reap more that what was sowed. The harvest takes time–patience is required. A blessed field to sow in is within the household of faith because of God’s faithfulness to us, His family.
Psalm 115:1 “Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to Your Name give glory, for the sake of Your steadfast love and Your faithfulness.”
Scripture reading for August 23rd: Galatians 6
Key Scriptures for over-comers: Galatians 6: 7-10 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please the sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
Deception is always possible if we get off into the flesh or believe the lies of our adversary. Anything can be justified by our flesh and often we think that because of what we have done for God or how long we have walked with God that we can justify a little sowing to the sinful nature. However, what we sow we will reap! There are only two fields and two harvest that will definitely come. The field of the flesh will always yield destruction and the field of the Spirit eternal life! We must not grow weary or give up sowing to the Spirit. We are to be especially helpful to the family of God.
Observations for over-comers: Perseverance in sowing to the Spirit marks the life of an over-comer and there will be a rich harvest of eternal life for all who finish well! “Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what they have done.” (Isaiah 3:10-11)
