I want to read a passage of scripture to you from Galatians chapter 6. And I know that on the PowerPoint you have a passage of scripture from New American Standard Bible, but I just want to read it from the King James; I’m old-school. Galatians chapter 6 beginning at verse number 6 – “Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the spirit shall off the spirit reap life everlasting.”
Let’s pray. Father we thank you for your word. Lord I love you word, and I pray this morning that you’d help us to really listen to what you have to say to us. And I pray Lord God that that I will be able to communicate Lord God what I believe what the spirit of God is saying to us at this time. Lord I know this is a series that we’ve been into for the last while, and I thank you for the various speakers that we’ve had, I thank you for each and every one of them. And Lord God for the other speakers that are going to be speaking in the in the weeks to come Lord I just pray that anointing of the spirit of God would be upon them to be able to minister the word of God, because Lord God’s standing behind this music stand, pulpit, Lord God is so serious that we can’t take this lightly. And I pray this morning that God as the word of God goes forth minister to our hearts, may Lord God our hearts be open to receive and to make the changes that are necessary in our own personal walk with you. We thank you and we praise you for it in Jesus name, Amen.
Daring to sow in faith is about sowing and reaping. Seed time and harvest time – this is something that God actually instituted, something that God created. Genesis 8:22 says this, and I want you to really pay attention that verse. I want you to look at it very carefully because this is what it says, “Well the earth remains seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” So if you are in a place where you hate winter it says here it will never cease. Whether we like it or not, it says in the word of God and it says in the first book of the Bible, Genesis 8, so don’t you forget it.
Seed time and harvest time, this is something that God has instituted, this is God’s law of seed and harvest. The interesting part about that too is that there are laws that govern both seed and harvest. And there are certain people that experience this all the time, it plays out with them all the time, and that is a farmer and a gardener. I come from a farm and I experience this every year. Growing up as kids we had a garden, and as we got older we had to have more so we had to have another garden. And these are not just small little gardens, they were big gardens, because you grow up, you want more food so you had to sow more seed and then of course you’d have more of a harvest so you have plenty of food, and that’s the way it is. And so scripture uses the farmer and gardener metaphor to illustrate our lives, our Christian lives. Look what Galatians 6:7 says, and I’m going to be referring to this verse quite a bit today. “For whatever a man sows this he will also reap.” Really may the spirit of God drive this into our hearts; this is serious stuff. So if I don’t kid around a whole lot today… I’ll probably do it every so often. But this is a serious topic.
When you look at that verse, at this statement, it says that sowing and reaping are connected; what you sow is what you reap. So we cannot ignore the laws of sowing and reaping in our lives, for either it will bless us or harm us. I want you to remember that – it will either bless us or harm us. And the laws of sowing and reaping is really connected in every area of our lives, we can’t run away from that. It affects us in our relationships, our finances, careers, health, and building your talent. And we’re going to be mentioning some other things as the message goes on. So therefore, we need to look at the specific laws that govern sowing and reaping. It is very critical that we understand this law of sowing and reaping because it affects us personally and the people around us. We must never underestimate this topic. And so often we don’t think seriously about it, because we think in terms like, “Ah, no big deal.” That’s what we think. But sowing and reaping is a very important topic. So today I’m going to challenge you, and I hope I can, by the spirit of God, first that you need to have daring faith when it comes to sowing good seed into your life and people around you. And secondly, realizing that there are laws that we cannot run away from. It doesn’t matter how we want to think, that maybe somehow it can bypass us, no it won’t.
Law number one – everything starts as a seed; everything starts as a seed. This was God’s design right from the very beginning. Genesis 1:11 says, “Then God said let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit after their kind with seed in them, and it was so.” God bathed these plants, the vegetation, and they had seed so they can reproduce themselves. And this is true with us too as our own personal lives. In Galatians 6 and 7, “Do not deceive, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” So we do so seeds, and there’s all kind of seeds – ideas, dreams, time, money, appreciation, wisdom, words, praise, good advice. And there’s another one, you are here today, how in the world did you come here? How did you get to this earth? Well, your father seed connected to your mother’s egg and life began, and here you are. Everything starts with a seed, and these seeds have value, the in itself has value, but it has far more value when you actually plant it or give it away. Like for instance, praise, good advice, love, words – the thing is, when it is actually given away it produces something, its benefiting someone else, it has incredible value. Look at one example at Proverbs 16:24, listen to this verse, “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” That’s talking about words. Words are powerful, and pleasant words are a honeycomb sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. So everything starts with a seed, or as a seed; that’s law number one.
Law number two says this – seed must be planted; seed might be must be planted. So first of all, nothing happens until something happens to the seed. Every spring, whatever seeds, carrots, potatoes, whatever they might be, peas, beans. And they come in these very interesting looking packages, and the pictures on them are beautiful, they’re just gorgeous pictures. Could you imagine if you just said to yourself, “Wow, look at these packages, aren’t they’re amazing? Look at the pictures. We’re just going to put it on the shelf and we’re going to look at it every day.” Does it do anything? No. All it does is just impress you with the pictures, but it doesn’t do anything. You have to plant that seed, or you’ve got to give it away, otherwise it is there by itself. John 12:24 says, “Truly I say to you unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.” The moment you plant that seed into the ground a miracle begins to take place, something begins to happen. Or when you give that seed away to someone, something begins to take place. There’s going to be a harvest.
But there’s a second part to this. As believers in Christ when we actually plant seeds of love or whatever it might be, we need to sow in faith. The Bible says in Mark 4:26 – 27, and Jesus was saying this and he said, “The kingdom of God is like a man who cast seed upon the soil, and he goes to bed at night and gets up by day and the seed sprouts and grows; how? He himself does not know.” Just imagine, after you have planted the seed, you’ve planted the seed and nothing seems to happen and so you say to yourself, “You know what, I don’t know whether my wife does this, I hope she doesn’t do this.” Well, you just decide, “You know what, we got to figure this out so I’m going to take a shovel or spade and I’m going to start digging to see what’s happening with the seed.” Is that what we do? No. It says here this particular person, he sowed the seed and he went to bed, he was not worried what was going to happen. He just simply believe the seed that he sowed he’s going to have a crop, he’s going to harvest down the road. And so it is with us, we’re to believe that what we sow, especially good seed, that it’s going to bear fruit. We got to believe it because we got to believe God; that’s who we believe in.
I think of the carrots that we planted this past year as well, and I didn’t do much planning at all because of my arm. But anyway, but I remember the carrots the carrots after they were planted and they took it seemed like forever, nothing was happening. I said, “Dear, it’s going to grow, sooner or later it’s going to grow.” Because according to God’s plan you sow a seed, it’s going to grow eventually. And I encouraged her, I said, “One of these days it’s going to happen.” And sure enough all of a sudden the ground start to crack and you begin to see the shoot come up, that was the beginning, hallelujah. So we have carrots, we have lots of carrots; we have lots of carrots, praise God.
But when it comes to sowing good seeds into people’s lives, into our own lives, it’s not about it’s not about feelings, it’s about doing it. Whether I feel like it or not, I sow seed and I believe God, that God is going to bring the harvest in. It’s going to start growing, things are going to happen. The Bible says in Galatians 6:9, “Let us not lose heart in doing good for in due time we well reap if we do not grow weary.” So we’ve got to sow seeds. A lot of times we are, but we got to believe that it’s going to bear, there’s going to be a crop. So when do I sow? Well, let me tell you this, don’t wait for Christmas but do it now. That is a saying and so I’m saying that to you – don’t wait for another day to sow the word of God into your life. Begin to sow the word into your life, begin to do it every day, don’t do it just occasionally but do it every day. Begin to sow love into other people’s lives. God’s word is so essential for us. The Bible says be transformed by the renewing of your mind. How do you do that? You need God’s word, you need to take that and sow it into your life and it will bring the changes about that needs to happen.
A lot of things what I do actually, I do this a lot more than I used to. When I take scripture every morning and I go through the verses, one of my prayers is this, “God, I pray that this word is going to transform me, that it’s going to do something in my life.” I’m taking it seriously then. I’m not just simply taking the word and I read it, “Oh, I’m done.” No. Take it, pray over it, “God I am trusting that what I’m sowing this morning is going to bear fruit in my life.” That’s God’s will, and we need to take this thing seriously in Jesus name. 2 Corinthians 6:2 says, “Behold now is the accepted time, behold now is the day of salvation.” One of our biggest problems in our lives is that stinking word call procrastination, it’s a stinking word, sorry about that, but it is because we procrastinate, we put it off, we put it off. No. It’s time to get busy; especially in this hour.
Law number three – when in need plant a seed; when in need plant a seed. Just think of the farmer, springtime is coming and so he knows the time is coming when he’s going to sow the seed, but it’s obviously a need. He gets his machinery all ready, he looks at his bin and there’s a lot of grain in those bins he’s got. He looks at the field and it’s barren. Obviously there’s a need here, he needs to have that thing planted because if he doesn’t plant it, it stays in the bin and it doesn’t do anything; eventually it’ll rot. That’s right, eventually it’ll rot. And so therefore he has to plant it, he’s got to plant it.
Many of us, we want God to bless us without sowing anything; that’s how we live. We expect God to come on the scene and pour out his blessing on us and we haven’t sown a thing. This is serious stuff. We pray, “God, meet my financial needs.” But we do not tithe, we don’t tithe and we expect God to jump at our command. If you need more energy, if I need more energy, do you know what I need to do? I need to use the energy that I’ve got so I can get more. It’s true because I hear people talking about, “Oh, I’m so tired.” I’m saying to myself, “It’s about time you use the energy you have and use it so you can have more energy.” I’m not talking to Perry, you’re out of the question buddy. If you need more love in your life, if you really need more love in your life it’s time that you give away what you’ve got. Do you know the interesting part about that? I said to someone or I was talking to someone just the other day, we’re talking about this whole idea – I’m not trying to point fingers at anyone please, this message is not designed for that at all, because I’m talking to myself as well. I said to someone, “I don’t have much in the way of friends, like real close friends.” I’m admitting something to you right now. But when I do, I feel like this is what I’m supposed to do. I’m not waiting for people to love on me. What I do is I give out what I’ve got. I can’t wait folks, I can’t wait for others to come to me, I’ve got to give what I’ve got. I was sharing this with Matt I think it was, we were talking about this very thing because it’s essential – you give what you’ve got and you’re going to reap a harvest. It is essential that we don’t wait for anybody else but step out and do it; just do it. God is going to reward you for it. When in need use what you have. If you need more money then learn to give absolutely.
Matthew 25:14 -15 says this, “For it’s just like a man about to go on a journey who called his own slaves and entrusted his possessions to them. To one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, each according to his own ability, and he on his journey.” You know the story, the guy who had five talents he did something with it. The guy who had two talents, he did something with it as well, they add more afterwards. And that’s what basically this thing is saying to us, that when you’re in need use what you’ve got and give it away or sow it somewhere, and you’ll have more.
Law number four – whatever I sow I will reap. Now we’re getting into dangerous ground, because now we’re talking about reproducing after its own kind. Galatians 6:7 says this again, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows this he will also reap.” Genesis 1:24 – 25 says this, “Then God said, let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind, cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind, and it was so. God made the beasts of the earth after their kind and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind. And God saw that it was good.” Now, this is talking about the good things. Snakes reproduce after their kind, chickens reproduce after their kind, and the list goes on and on. We planted carrots, we didn’t get snakes, we got carrots. Peas were sown, we got peas. Wouldn’t it be just horrible, you plant things that you don’t know what to expect, that’d be horrible, what a way to live.
But that’s not what God designed. God designed that everything will reproduce after its kind. But this truth, number two, works both ways. What you dish out is what you’re going to get in return. What you dish out is what you’re going to get in return. Depending on the seed that you sow, because it can work for you or against you. This is getting serious folks. Look what the scripture says, some of the negative examples in the scripture. These are just a few – Job 4:8 from the New Living Translation it says this, “My experience shows that those who plant trouble and cultivate evil will harvest the same.” Proverbs 22:8 says, “Those who plant injustice will harvest disaster.” Hosea 10:13 says, “But you have cultivated wickedness and harvested a thriving crop of sins.” This is really trouble.
But then there’s also positive examples in scripture. Hosea 10:12 says this, “I said plant the good seeds of righteousness and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow the hard ground of your hearts for now is the time to seek the Lord that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.” Proverbs 11:18 – 19, “Evil people get rich for the moment, but the reward of the godly will last. Godly people find life evil people find death.” James 3:18, “And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.” So the question is, what are you sowing? What are you sowing in your life and the people around you? This is serious stuff. What kind of seeds are you sowing in your relationships, your wife, your husband, your friends, your children, your business, your workplace? What kind of seeds are you sowing? Are your sowing seeds of trust or sowing seeds of distrust? Are you sowing seeds of kindness, or are you sowing seeds of crankiness, anger, bitterness, meanness, disobedience, rebellion? Are you sowing seeds that build up or seeds that tear down?
This is very true – you sow anger in your home and you’ll reap angry children. You sow patience and kindness and you’ll reap this in your children. If you sow irresponsibility, you cannot reap success. This is serious folks. If you sow laziness you will not reap rewards. There’s a story in the Bible about a man by the name of Jacob, and I’m not going to go through the whole story, but here’s Jacob who is the father of 12 tribes of Israel whose name means ‘supplanter’ which means ‘who lived by deceit’, who cheated his brother and his father, and who himself was cheated by his father-in-law. I like the Message Bible that translates Galatians 6:7 and 8, and this is what it says, “Don’t be misled. Though no one makes a fool of God, what a person plants he will harvest.” The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others, ignoring God, harvests a crop of weeds. All he have to show for his life is weeds. But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvest a crop of real life, eternal life. That’s what this law is saying, and it’s true.
Law number five says I am not the only sower. I don’t know whether I want to go on any further, because this gets really hard because this is serious stuff. I am not the only sower. In John 4:38 it says, “I sent you to harvest where you didn’t plant. Others had already done the work and now you will get together the harvest.” So you know what it’s saying there is the good seed. You talk about the gospel, you sow these seeds of the gospel, someone comes along and waters it, another person comes along and they reap. But that is also true on the other side as well. There are sowers before us. It’s great for the good seed, but the truth is about the bad seed as well. I’ll tell you this, this is hard stuff because some of us have grown in families with a history of verbal, emotional and physical abuse, history of alcoholics, drugs, adultery, divorce, sexual promiscuity, fornication, and the cycle goes on, there’s so many things. And it’s been planted, sown in the past, and here you are, you’re reaping. You’re wondering why things are not changing, you’re trying to go in this direction but you keep going back to the same way that your parents lived or your grandparents or your great-grandparents. This is a generational stuff, so they’re more sowers in your life, and it affects you whether you like it or not. That is truth, that is real stuff, we’re not playing games here, this is real stuff.
I was talking to someone not too long ago who said to me, “I am so fed up with a history of divorce. It’s been in my generations. And here I am, I’m going to experience the same thing.” I said, “No you don’t. You can put a stop to it in Jesus name. You can put a stop to that generational stuff.” It can be broken. We sang this morning Chain Breaker, Jesus is the chain breaker, and this stuff can stop in Jesus name, I don’t care what it is. We don’t have to continue that road or that kind of lifestyle. You can put a stop to it, but you’ve got to recognize it. Let me say this, you’ve got to recognize what it is, you’ve got to repent concerning your parents, your grandparents, you have to stand in the gap, you have to repent for them. And then you have to forgive them, and then you have to renounce this stuff, you got to name it and you got to renounce it in Jesus name. And then what you have to do is by faith put the cross of Jesus Christ between yourself and this stuff, because what you’re doing is declaring death over this problem or these things that have influenced your life. In Jesus name you can do it, I’ve seen it work, and it works. And now what you pray then, “God I pray in Jesus name give me new life, new thoughts, new ideas how to live, the resurrection of life. May you birth in me new ideas, new ways to live in Jesus name.” And he will, he’ll give it to you. This is serious stuff, but it works.
The key is right now you are sitting here and everything you do from this day forward there are consequences. You’re the one who are laying the groundwork for future generations, and so therefore I’ve got to do it right. I got to learn how to sow good seeds, not continue the bad seeds from the past. There’s life folks. There is freedom, we sing about freedom. But so many of us are stuck in prison with some of these things and we can’t unlock the door. But glory to God, there’s a chain breaker that can break this free from us in Jesus name. What kind of legacy do you want to have or to leave? One with faith or doubt or fear?
Law number six – I always reap in a different season than I sow. The thing is when you think of the garden, I go back to it because we plant a garden every year. What you sow in the springtime you reap in the late summer or fall, in a different season. And that applies to everything we do. Ecclesiastes 3:2 says, “There’s a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted.” So in other words, you don’t necessarily reap that same season, you’ll reap in a different season. You will reap maybe a year down the road, maybe two years down the road, maybe three years down the road. It’s interesting about some people, they say, “Yeah, there’s been bad stuff but it hasn’t affected us at all.” But you know what, the truth is you will reap what you sow in a different season. And then sometimes, like tomatoes for instance, that’s a good example – you have tomatoes going on the branch. You’ve got a tomato plant and all these tomatoes. It’s interesting how some ripen and others don’t. But eventually they will ripen. Even in one season you can have all these things happening, it’s just one thing after another, problems after problems. So what we sow, we will reef in a different season.
Law number seven – I always reap more than I sow; I always reap more than I sow. I think of potatoes. I think of potatoes because we plant potatoes every year. You plant one seed and when you dig it up in the fall time you have 10,12, and they come in all different sizes and so forth. But there’s no question you will reap more than you sow, that’s why the farmer plants in the springtime what he’s got because in the fall he’s going to have a lot more. And that is true with sin as well. We sometimes think, one little small sin, that’s no big deal, no big deal. We think nothing of it, and guess what? That little small thing that you thought was nothing eventually begins to grow, and before you know it now it’s affecting my children, and before you know it my children get a hold of this stuff and it affects their lives and now they’re affected by the very thing that I started which I thought nothing of at the time. And now it’s affecting my future generations to come. And then it just gets worse. It never stays at a certain size, it keeps growing, it’s like that tree. It started with a small seed but it keeps on growing it gets bigger and bigger, the branches get bigger and the tree keeps growing. And the same applies to bad seed – it never stops.
But you can stop it, you can stop it praise God. Gossiping – I know I’m stepping on stuff. But gossip, there people who gossip. Guess what can happen to you? You will reap a crop of gossip about you. We’ve got to stop these things, repent of it and begin to sow good seed. Mark 4:8 says, “Other seeds fell into the ground into the good soil, and as they grew up and increased they yielded a crop and produce thirty, sixty and a hundredfold.” That is true for the good side, but it’s also true for the bad. What kind of seed are you sowing?
Law number eight, and the last one – I increase my harvest by sowing more seed. This is the law of proportion in its play. So if I want more, if I want more good things happen in my life I need to sow more. 2 Corinthians 9:6 says, “Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly. And he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” I didn’t say that; I just repeated what God’s word says. Do you know what the problem with a lot of us is? We sow little, but we want God to be generous. We sow little but we want God to be generous. We want God to just pour out barrels or truckloads of blessing on us, and all we’ve done is just a little sowing. It says here he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully; guess what? God is calling upon us to be generous. Begin to sow generosity and God will bless you.
The Bible says this, he who waters will be watered himself. That’s what the word of God says. So it is crucial for us to learn to be generous, step out, this is talking about stepping out in faith, doing it. You want God to bless you in your finances, guess what? You’ve got to step out and say, “You know what? I know times are tough, it’s hard but I’m going to put God first. I’m going to continue sowing that seed. I’m going to keep on doing it. I’m going to keep on doing it whether I feel like it or not. I’m going to do it. I’m going to do it. I’m going to do it.” And God will bless; that’s my God.
We’ve gone through tough times, believe you me. We’ve had instances in our lives where it was we didn’t have much of anything. I remember, and I’ve shared this story before, but I remember having 10 cents in my pocket. That was Sunday afternoon. My wife says, “Are we going to church tonight?” That was our lifestyle – I didn’t care whether it was snowing or hailing or storming, whatever, we went to church. And the people that we led to Christ, they saw this and now they’re doing the same thing. What you sow is what you reap. You want people in your life, your children to be faithful, you as a parent need to be faithful, you’ve got to sow faithfulness. That is true folks, or else you’re going to produce exactly what you have sown – if it’s negative, it’ll be negative, if it’s positive it’ll be positive; it can be changed, it’s true. And so I remember that very night or that day when my wife said to me, “Are we going to church?” I said, “We’re going to church.” And because we stepped out and did it with even 10 cents and the gas tank said it was almost empty, God blessed us. God blessed us from sources that I never even thought of.
If you put God first, if you keep sowing, keep sowing righteousness, keep sowing faith, keep sowing kindness, love, mercy, obedience, God will pour out righteousness upon you over and over and over again. God is for you; he’s not against you. In 2 Corinthians 9:10 it says, “Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.” Proverbs 11:24, “There is one who scatters, yet increases all the more.” And there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in what?
Are you happy with your life? Are you happy with the way things are? You can change it. You can change the way things are going on in your life by simply saying, “God, I’m so sorry that I’ve been a cheapskate.” I haven’t used that word for a long time. But if we want God to bless us then we’ve got to stop being cheapskates, start giving what you’ve got. As I said before you want more love, give it away. The gates are saying that song called Give it Away. But you know what, one thing that I believe in, I have clothes and I’ve given clothes away, I’ve given cars away. I’ve given cars away, I’ve given clothes away. My wife sometimes has said, “Come on Nick, don’t do that. It costs money.” Carolyn, do you want to share? Can you share you share with me concerning finances what you share with us, can you remember that? Come over here, because this is good. Can you give us at least five minutes?
Carolyn: A few years ago, well a number of years ago…
Pastor Nick: This has to do with that those people that gave that quilt away.
Carolyn: I was going to tell you another good one. Duane was looking at donations and he’d asked my daughter, she owns a quilt store and she makes quilts and that, and he had asked her if she could donate something towards this raffle. And so she said yes, she would. So anyway, she went and she gave him this quilt, and when he brought it he actually gave it to me to keep and then he says to me, “It’s worth $650 so I’m not going to put it in there. I think what we’ll do is put raffle tickets on it.” But I’m thinking to myself, “Myrna, why would you give a $650 quilt away when all you needed to do was just make a little dress or scarf or something like that around Christmas?” And I’m thinking this to myself, I didn’t say it to her. But as we were studying in daring faith and whatnot, and it was like God showed me you give away, you get back what you give away. And he said “test me”. And I’m thinking, “Oh my God. Forgive me for even thinking the way I was.” And so then I went and I text my daughter and I said, “Myrna.” And then I told her what I was thinking and I said, “Because you gave that $650 quilt away your business is going to be blessed.” So that was all I said, and then pretty soon she phones me back a day or so later and she said, “Mom, I showed the girls, my staff, I showed the girls that text that you sent me.” And she said they both started to cry and they’re not Christians. So we don’t know where what we say or what we do is going to help somebody else along.”
It is so crucial, what we sow we’re going to reap, and you never know because when you’re sowing seeds, you’re sowing for people that you know and people that you don’t know. And so that’s why I believe the clothing zone, Sharon, God has put you in a very strategic place, and I believe that God is going to bless you as you keep sowing. And even pray that what you say that God is going to bless it, take it and it’ll cause people to change. Father I pray for Sharon and the clothing zone right now in Jesus name. I pray Lord God that you would bless Sharon right now, and God that she sees herself sowing good seeds unto people that are coming from other countries of the world, people from Syria, from Bangladesh, or from any other country Lord. I pray that she sees herself sowing good seeds into these people’s lives, and Lord God that she will bear a harvest, she will reap a harvest to the glory of God. I thank you and I praise you for it, in Jesus name.
And this afternoon that is the challenge to you. It’s time that you stop what you’re doing, sowing bad seeds. Or if you haven’t sown the seeds that you should in your life, repent and say, “God forgive me that I’ve been disobedient to you. I know that I should have done this, but I haven’t. But today I repent of it and I ask for you to help me to be able to sow good seed.” And God will bless you. Father we just thank you, and we give you praise again. Father I pray that these people begin to see themselves sowing good seed and believing for reward, believing for a good harvest in Jesus name. That we’re not just doing it blindly, but God even if it is blindly, but we’re going to believe anyway, and that God you’re going to bless us accordingly. We give you praise and we give you thanks in Jesus name, amen and amen, glory to God.
