0102 – What Are You Sowing? 你正在种什么?

Galatians 6:7-8 (NKJV) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 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.God is not mocked, so what are you sowing and reaping in your lives? It’s up to us to claim and obtain the promises given to us regarding the abundant life now, so let’s deal with our flesh and take hold of what belongs to us!

We cannot expect God to restore our relationships if we are the ones destroying them, and to bless our marriage if we don’t deal with the differences and walk in love and forgiveness. We sow into the flesh and reap strained and broken relationships!

We also cannot expect God to bless our business and bail us out of trouble if we are unethical in our practices and follow the ways of the world. If we don’t consecrate our plans to Him, we reap a failed business!

Neither can we expect God to help us walk in victory over sin and temptation if we constantly expose ourselves to temptations. We reap the destruction of our reputation, marriage or finances. Likewise, we cannot expect God to deliver us if we willfully disregard and disrespect the law of the land. We reap the consequences of facing the wrath of the law of the country!

On the other hand, we walk in the Spirit and obtain the promises when we believe that we’ve been set free from the law of sin and death. We claim the promise that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus operates within us, and we believe that the resurrection power lives in us and is empowering us to overcome sin and temptations.

When we choose to sow love, grace, forgiveness and mercy into our spouse, we reap love and a blessed marriage, and when we choose to do unto others what we want others to do unto us, we reap blessed relationships all around us!

When we choose to honour and respect those in authority that God has placed over us, be it the government, church leaders or corporate heads, we reap an environment of peace and favour with them!

When we choose to consecrate our plans to God and surrender to God by saying not our will but His will be done in our lives, we reap protection over us, peace of mind and blessings of God, and when we refuse to compromise with unethical suggestions or practices, we reap peace and joy because we have conducted ourselves above reproach.

We choose to walk in the Spirit when we lay down all our rights, privileges and entitlements that are contrary to God and His Words. We will enjoy the abundant life.

Sermon Series: You Are in the Hall of Faith! (Part 4)


你正在种什么?

加拉太书6:7-8不要自欺, 神是轻慢不得的。人种的是什么,收的也是什么。顺着情欲撒种的,必从情欲收败坏;顺着圣灵撒种的,必从圣灵收永生。

上帝是轻慢不得的,你在生命中种的是什么,收的又是什么呢?论到现世的丰盛生命,要不要声索和获取那赐给我们的应许完全在于我们自己,因此,让我们对付自己的肉体,把握属于我们的一切吧!

如果我们是破坏人际关系的那一方,我们就不能指望上帝来恢复这关系;如果我们不处理分歧,行在爱与宽恕里,我们也不能指望上帝来祝福我们的婚姻。 我们顺着情欲撒种,收获紧张而破裂的关系!

如果我们行事不道德,遵循世道,我们也不能指望上帝保佑我们的业务并免于麻烦。 如果我们不将心中的谋划分别为圣献给他,那我们将收获失败的生意!

如果我们不断地使自己曝露于诱惑,我们也不能指望上帝能帮助我们战胜罪恶和诱惑。 我们收获的是声誉,婚姻或财务状况的破坏。 同样,如果我们故意无视和不尊重当地的法律,我们就不能指望上帝拯救我们。 我们收获的是面对那国的法律的震怒!

另一方面,当我们相信自己已脱离罪与死的律时,我们是在圣灵中并获得应许。 我们声索基督耶稣生命之灵的律法在我们内部运作的应许,我们相信复活的大能存在于我们体内,并赐我们能力胜过罪与诱惑。

当我们选择对我们的配偶播种爱、恩典、饶恕与怜悯时,我们收获爱和幸福的婚姻,当我们选择将己之所欲施与人时,我们收获与周遭人们蒙福的关系!

当我们选择尊重和尊重上帝置于我们之上的权柄时,无论那是政府,教会领袖还是企业负责人,我们都将收获一个和平的环境,并得到他们的恩待!
