This past Saturday, Scott Duncan challenged us with this statement:
“As we repent and confess our sins, God works in our lives in powerful ways. Change is from the inside out.”
Our final lesson in Galatians 6: 1-18 is about sowing to the spirit, as opposed to sowing to the flesh. The term “sowing” is a term for planting seed, and is used here to describe what we invest our lives in. If we invest our lives in the spirit, we will reap or harvest the grace and knowledge of God and the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives as God changes us. On the other hand, if we invest our lives in selfish, worldly desires, then we will only reap those things, and not exhibit any spiritual fruit or have the benefits and hope of God’s grace and knowledge.
How will we know if we are sowing to the spirit? As my table group partner Rodney McClellan said on Saturday:
“It will show as you grow, so others will know.”
