SOWING AND REAPING
October 3, 2010

 

   Galatians 6:7 One of the most significant spiritual laws in the bible is this; for every action there will be a reaction, whether good or bad.

 

FINANCES

 

   Luke 12:48b The law of sowing and reaping regarding finances is quite clear in the bible. However, many teachers and preachers have taken verses out of context in order to use emotions and false promises to those who refuse to search the scriptures for themselves to find the scriptural truth.

   Matthew 25:14-28 Jesus explains the right use of whatever moneys He has blessed us with.

   Malachi 3:10-11 Here is God's promise for those who will tithe to God's church (storehouse). The promise is that God will bless those that believe Him regarding His ten percent. The promise is not that He will make us rich, but that He will make sure our needs will be met (Philippians 4:19).

   II Corinthians 8:1-5 The church of Macedonia has been reaping the praise of God for over two thousand years and will be reaping rewards throughout eternity from their seed that they sowed.

 

TALENTS

 

   Romans 6:19-23 Paul explains the law of sowing and reaping by explaining how we sowed the seeds of unrighteousness and were reaping the awful benefits from that. But now we should be sowing seeds of righteousness and will reap the benefits from our Lord.

   I Corinthians 15:58 God is clear about sowing and reaping while doing the work of ministry.

   Ephesians 6:8 Paul tells us that whatever good thing we do shall be rewarded by our Lord.

 

SIN

 

   Job 4:8 The earliest recorded scriptures teach us that wickedness shall be rewarded with the same.

   Hosea 8:1, 7 Because of their disobedience to God, He promises that they will reap the whirlwind.

   Galatians 6:8a When we review the whole history of mankind from Genesis through Revelation

God 's word has proven to be true regarding those that insist on doing wrong, they will reap tragedy.

 

GLORY

 

   Matthew 20:1-9 Jesus gave this parable for the purpose of those who might feel that it is too late for them to sow the seed of service or giving. Our Lord makes it clear that we are never too old to do something for Him. He will always reward us for everything done for His glory.

   Matthew 13:3-9 The familiar parable of the sower provides us with how we reap what is sowed spiritually. The seed represents the word of God. It is given or sowed by teaching, preaching, reading, etc. How it is received will depend on what will be reaped in the harvest.

   Psalms 126:5-6 As we sow the seed of the word of God and give it out with much prayer and love for those who receive it, God promises to bless us in the harvest of those souls.

   Isaiah 32:20; Romans 10:13-15 God promises blessings for those that will sow the seed of the word of God in other countries. As the church of the living God we are called to help others who have the call of God to go into all the world to preach the gospel so that God will have a full harvest of souls.
