Sowing and Reaping

Galatians 6:7

We live in a day of spiritual forgetfulness. Men are forgetting God and His Son. They are forgetting His church. They are forgetting that Sunday is the Lord's day. People are spiritually forgetful, but the awful fact remains that they must pay for their neglect and forgetfulness. They must reap what they sow. This is an unchangeable law of nature and of God.

Men may forget God and all that this forgetfulness involves, but one day they will reap the fearful harvest. "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." There is no truer text in the Bible! But even if these words were not in the Bible, we know that they are true. We know from experience. We have sown and the reaping time has come. We know that this is the truth!

This morning, I want to take some time and look at the truth of this verse. We know that specifically this passage is dealing with the relationship of our giving. A similar passage is found in the gospel of Luke 6:38, "Give, and it shall be given unto you...for with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." However, this law applies to every area of our lives, not just our giving of material wealth. As we look at this familiar Scripture today, I want us to see...

I. A Solemn Warning. "Be not deceived..."

II. An Unalterable Fact. "...God is not mocked..."

III. A Great Responsibilty. "Whatsoever a man soweth..."

IV. An Unchanging Law. "That shall he also reap."

Conclusion: This morning, if you have never been saved, you will reap everlasting separation from God in a Christ-less burning Hell. God loves you and desires that you spend eternity with Him in heaven. Will you come today and accept Christ as your Savior?

Christians, what kind of harvest will you have from your life? Have you been obedient to God's Word? Who are you influencing right now? Is your conscience clear before God? Do you need to come this morning and spend some time at this altar doing business with God?
