SEEDS ARE SOWN FOR TIME.

Christian brethren, I welcome all of us  to this first Sunday of October 2020. It is my prayer that God will bless your soul with this sermon. I pray for you that you will sow good seed in this life,  so that your harvest will be full of joy before the Lord.

LET US TAKE THIS WALK IN OUR HEARTS.

I am yet to see a seed that germinates on  the day it is sown on the ground. A grain of corn might germinate within four to seven days. The palm nut or coconut may take a longer time ( even years) and other seeds germinate according to their types.

So seeds are sown for time for it to germinate and begin to grow.  Our works on this earth are like seeds sown for time. The harvest can be within a short time and coconut trees or palm trees may be harvested over very many years after many years of sowing. People might reap the fruit of their evil for many years on earth and that does not cancel the sufferings that come in erernity.

We must begin to address our desire for sweet messages. Some christians want sweet messages that boost their ego, and not the message that condemn their sin. Note here that God’s blessings are there already for us.

What I am telling us here is just a reminder. This is old scriptural admonition.

Germinated seeds could take months and years to begin to bear fruit. So depending on what we have planted we might wait for shorter or longer period to expect the harvest.

If we have sown good we harvest good for a long time or short  time , it is  same as one who has done evil. This is the position on earth, but the judgement in eternity is for ever.

And we will not sow grapes and harvest oranges except they have been  grafted. We cannot sow corn and harvest rice. It is what we have sown that we harvest.

The Bible tells us these :

 FIRST THING TO NOTE

6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6 : 7-8)

What a man soweth is what he reaps. Those who sow to the flesh are those who do all for the sake of this material life. All aspects of sin are seeds sown in the flesh.

Such sowers  are not concerned about God and what He will give them. They do no righteous work,  but are concerned with what they gather here. These material thIngs will perish, so such people reap corruption or death, but not just physical death, but hell and all it stands for.

Those who sow to the spirit are those who do righteous work for they shall reap a eternal life.

The time of reaping shall come,  it may be delayed, but shall not be denied. For that reason we should not weary in doing good for every righteous work  is seed sown for time.

So we have heard it and we  have to make our choice now and here on this earth and do good.

THE VOLUME OF OUR SEEDS SOWN COUNTS.

Any good done should be done in abundance. If you sow a hand full of grains, you will not be at the harvest like that man who sows a basket of grains. So in the following scriptures, we are cautioned not to sow sparingly, for those who sow sparingly will harvest in the same way.

(2) SECOND TIME TO NOTE :

9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. (2 Corinthians 9 :6).

Do many good things for you do not know how they will fruition for you.

We have this encouragement about well doing :

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”(Galatians 6 : 9).

Do not weary about doing good for in due season, when it is time  to harvest what you are sowng there will be rejoicing.

AND  TO THE NATIONS AND HER LEADERS.

Individuals are sowing today, so are villages also sowing,  the nations of the world are not excepted. The nations and peoples shall reap what they have sown. Was Babylon not a great city, were there no empires in the past? Many, if not all  of them, crumbled and even some names have disappeared, because they did evil before the Lord.

Every evil done by humanity shall be brought into judgement on the people of the nations, The individuals will be rewarded separately ( hell or heaven). Nations will not go to hell or heaven as a body, but the individuals will. But on  this physical earth, nations will be  devasted for their sins. When Israel sinned God dealt with them as a nation.

GOD BLESS YOU AND GIVE YOU LONG LIFE, TO DO GOOD WORK THAT WILL USHER YOU TO ETERNAL LIFE BEFORE GOD. AMEN.
