“Reaping a Harvest”
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
The Apostle Paul was encouraging the Galatian churches to not lose heart, and become WEARY in doing good to all people, and especially to those who were a part of the family of God, the TRUE BELIEVERS. Paul wanted the people to know that no matter how long it took to see the results of sowing the seeds of goodness, it would be worth the TIME and EFFORT, because they would REAP a HARVEST. He urged them to NOT GIVE UP!
This HARVEST would come at the PROPER TIME, which would be God’s time. When a farmer plants seeds, he spends a lot of TIME and EFFORT to ensure a GOOD HARVEST. So it is with SPIRITUAL PLANTING, it can take a long time to see the HARVEST. So you should NOT become weary in doing good.
One very important thing to REMEMBER, is when a person sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit they will reap ETERNAL LIFE. (v 8) Whenever, we witness to others, we are PLANTING seeds of the Spirit, and sometimes it is someone else who will provide the WATER, the Word of God, and maybe even another person that will do the REAPING, or bringing the lost one to SALVATION and ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven. Nevertheless, we ALL NEED to be PLANTING, and NOT become weary in doing good, in order to REAP a HARVEST of souls.
Are you planting seeds that would PLEASE your FLESH or seeds that will PLEASE the SPIRIT? If you are planting seeds to PLEASE your FLESH, you will REAP DESTRUCTION. However, if you will TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, He will FORGIVE your sins. But you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then you MUST ACCEPT God’s gift of SALVATION and start PLANTING seeds to PLEASE the SPIRIT, and REAP a HARVEST of souls for an ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
