Sowing Your Word Into The Garden Of Life

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked for whatever a man sows that he will also reap.

While going about the everyday business during our lifetime, do you ever wonder about how many “seeds” that you’ve planted along the way that actually have grown?  Have you ever witnessed the fruition of “growth” that may have started with a word from your lips to God’s ears that watered the heart of another?

Galatians 6:6 Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.

Not all of us are prompted to “teach” in the technical meaning or sense of the word. But all of us are called to contribute to the sharing of the Word. We should be unilaterally on the same page with spreading the Word of the LORD.

Galatians 6:8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he would shows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

It goes to show and say that those who are involved in earth-like anti-Christ practices, or worldly dalliances, are not headed for eternal rewards in the afterlife. Our spirit will, however, facilitate rapidly towards the eternal promises set by our Father, if we walk in the spirit, obey His laws and do as we are inherently called to do. Share the Word, communicate with others about the good news, and partake in fellowship sharing the love of Christ.

What better time to get on board than the season of Christ-mas? It is a time where people are more amenable and open, than any other time of the year. It is a springboard of opportunity to elicit responses, while planting seeds of love and encouragement along the way. It is our business to plant the seeds, but God’s job to “water” and make them grow. We are His vessels, not the “Procurer or Master” in control, God is and always will be. It’s up to Him.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Our mind-set should be in some measure instrumental in how we propose to bring about a “revelation” of sorts, to those who don’t believe or are confused in who the LORD actually is. We should never grow impatient with those who lack knowledge in the Word or are totally ignorant in who or what the gospel is.

Sadly, there are a plethora of individuals sorely lacking in this area. But it is our job, as Christians, and being a part of the great family and One body in Christ, to maneuver in ways for them to grasp the meaning, that perhaps will illuminate their hearts with the light from the LORD as told in His Word.

When Paul refers to not being deceived, he is giving us the bare essentials and timely reminders that there is always repercussions and consequences for our actions, or lack of action, whether good or bad. To think otherwise we would be sadly mistaken, or as Paul puts it, “deceived.” What and how we handle situations are of our own devices in terms of action/behavior. What we ultimately sow, we shall reap.

Do we sow love? Do we sow hate? Do we sow understanding of the Word? Do we sow chaos? Do we sow the light of the LORD? Do we sow darkness? The choice is yours. Choice is a simple word in and of itself…but it has booming reverberations that can be deafening in terms of God’s wrath… that can create quite a difference when we are called home.

Galatians 3:24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

In conclusion, God never intended that anyone try to “work” their way to heaven. Abraham couldn’t, Moses couldn’t, and neither could Paul. Noe of us can. The law shows us our need for a Savior, who rescued us by His Grace. But in sowing the seeds of love, compassion, humility, patience and attitude of Christ, we are certainly doing our job in great part of whom we are as Christians.

It is a huge responsibility being a servant of the LORD and being a vessel for His glory. As we endeavor to become strong overcomers in His Holy Army, we become victorious in all we do, in the name of Jesus. Are you ready to be part of His Army? Start sowing…

“Father, thank You for Your Word, and the opportunity to serve You daily in all I do, say, and act upon, may I glorify You all the days of my life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
