Gospel Harvest -September 15, 2019

You cannot fool God, so don’t make a fool of yourself! You will harvest what you plant. If you follow your selfish desires, you will harvest destruction, but if you follow the Spirit, you will harvest eternal life. We can’t allow ourselves to get tired of living the right way. Certainly, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up.

-Galatians 6:7-9

I can get forgiveness of my sin but I can’t un-sin. Even though God forgives, my still have .

Like newborn babies, you must crave pure spiritual milk so that you will grow into a full experience of salvation. Cry out for this nourishment, now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness.

-1 Peter 2:2

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.

-2 Corinthians 9:6-8

1.  I can only what I .

2.  My harvest will always come then when I planted

3. What I harvest will always be than what I planted.

If you give to others, you will be given a full amount in return. Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and spilling over into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.

-Luke 6:38

4.  My harvest will be proportional to the it took to plant.

I will not offer to the Lord my God sacrifices that cost me nothing.

-2 Samuel 24:24

5.  I can’t do anything about this harvest, but I can change next .
