One Who Sows
by Randy Chambers, 2015-09-24
Galatians 6:8, NIV: The one who sows to please his sinful nature,
from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit,
from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
It has been said that history repeats itself. It is more than likely that we
would all agree with that statement. Looking back through history reveals to the
children of God, a world that moves forward when ignited by hearts seeking God,
and a world that stumbles when they lose sight of Him. There is a cycle
throughout our past that continues today and will do so into our future (how
ever long that may be) on this earth. One generation boldly follows God, willing
to die for God. A few generations later, we find a people who are content to be
their own gods. It is then that God often allows them to suffer the consequences
of their wickedness, and in so doing, many come to the end of themselves, yield
to God and return to a path of righteousness. And as history would indicate--the
process starts all over again.
