The Law of Sowing and Reaping

Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

God has made us a promise here. As far as I am concerned, there is no wiggle room. The chickens do come home to roost every time. You cannot sow to the flesh and expect crop failure. It may take a while, but sowing to the flesh will result in corruption of the same.

Conversely, sowing to the Spirit will surely result in life everlasting. What all that entails, I really have little idea, but I can only imagine that it will be something beyond my wildest dreams and expectations.

Therefore, let us continue on in good works in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are going to reap, in this life and in the one to come. And, by all means, don’t give up. It could be today, maybe tomorrow, next week or next year, but the ultimate harvest will take place.

Let us labor for the Master from the dawn to setting sun.
Let us talk about His wondrous love and care.
Then when all of life is over and our work on earth is done,
When the roll is called up yonder, I'll be there.
