SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/12/15- “We Harvest, According To What We’ve Planted!” (Galatians 6:8)
Premise Question: Does, or in fact can, the sinful nature, which seeks only to please, satisfy and quench the thirsting and hungering of one’s own fleshly desires, ever produce life, or anything that’s good, right or holy; or will it always have the same result of perpetually producing only death?
“Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.” (Galatians 6:8 NLT)
Whoever chooses to follow the path of self-gratification, by always satisfying the sensual desires of their sinful nature, to the exclusion of everything else; sets into motion the law of destruction in their life, which will wreak havoc, loss, devastation and decay, resulting in being damaged beyond human repair. But, whoever diligently chooses to follow the path of delighting one’s self in The LORD, by always desiring to do His will, thereby, becomes pleasing and satisfying to The Spirit of God, and shall thus, from The Spirit, reap a harvest of righteous living and ultimately eternal life; for whatever presence you choose to practice, will surely bear fruit of its own kind, in your life, because you’ll always only harvest (get back accordingly) to what you’ve planted. (Galatians 6:8 PDCP)
Bottom Line: This Scripture is really a perfect example of “the law of reciprocity,” which is, the law of sowing and reaping; as in, whatever kind of seeds someone plants, in their life, they can most assuredly expect to receive a return, back into their life, of a harvest, according to the kind of seeds that they’ve planted! Just as apple seeds will not produce orange trees and tomato seeds will not produce cucumber vines, so too, anything that comes, as a result of the sinful nature being satisfied and fulfilled, will only produce after its kind, and therefore, can not and will not, as it doesn’t have the capacity to do so, produce anything good, but will always result in producing decay and death. Conversely, though, when one decides to live their life, by deliberately pleasing the Spirit, (Papa God) the resounding and most definite result will always be one of producing goodness, and a life that is thriving, flourishing and which, will result in producing a bountiful and glorious harvest of righteousness. So, we can choose to satisfy and fulfill the desires of our sinful nature, with its resulting consequences of producing a decaying death, or we can, with the efficacious help of The LORD, choose to live our lives to please The Spirit, with the wonderful and truly satisfying and fulfilling result and blessed consequence of producing an abundant and joyful life. Remember, whatever presence we choose to practice and seeds we plant in life, will produce fruit, a harvest, after its own kind! Blessings…
