✝️ TEXT: Galatians 6:1-8(NKJV)
6:1. Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who [are] spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.
6:2. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
6:3. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
6:4. But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
6:5. For each one shall bear his own load.
6:6. Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches.
6:7. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
6:8. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
✝️🗒️STUDY: Life is full of choices. The scripture enjoins us to “ponder the path of your feet, and … remove your foot from evil” (Prov. 4:26-27). We need to think about our choices and what the consequences of our choices are -corruption, or eternal life! There are those who delude themselves into thinking that God does not know the carnal desires of their hearts or the ungodly imaginations that lurk in the shadows of their minds. But Paul makes it very clear that God is not mocked by our ungodly ways and secret sins. All sins begin in the thought life. When a temptation comes up as a thought and is accepted, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is full grown (practised), it brings forth death (James 1:14-15). This death is reaping the wages of sin- a spiritual death, where one’s conscience becomes hardened and one cannot discern between good and evil. Hence, one lives in sin.
The rewards for sin come in the form of marital difficulties and divorce, financial difficulties, a mind filled with images of past sinful behaviour, thoughts of regret, anxiety, suspicion, bitterness and discontent. Only Jesus can set us free from all of this and make us free indeed! (John 8:34-36). Why not choose life and avoid suffering and misery? Sow to the Spirit and reap eternal life! Paul tells us that to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Rom. 8:6) If we walk in the Spirit, we will not fulfil the lusts of the flesh (Gal. 5:16-17). May we learn the lesson of sowing and reaping in our lives and avoid walking into trouble by our actions and choices.
✝️🙏PRAYER: Lord, make me a spirit man, that I may walk with you till the end.
