Sowing to the Spirit

Galatians 6:7‭-‬8 (NASB) Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

Frank and Boniface were classmates and close friends, and they both accepted the Lord Jesus the same day. Boniface took his walk with the Lord very seriously. He was committed to prayer and studying the word. He fasted often and was committed to evangelism. Two weeks after he believed, he ensured that he got baptized because he now understood the importance. All his neighbors knew that something had changed about him.

Frank on the other hand "took things easy". He was now going to church and now had a Bible app in his phone and a few sermons that motivated him toward business productivity, but he was not committed to prayers and did not really study his Bible. Unlike Boniface, he still maintained his relationship with his girlfriend, but they now vowed that they would no longer be intimate (a vow they had broken more than six times in three months).

After a few months, it became evident that Boniface was reaping the dividends of eternal life while Frank was still the same old Frank with a few tweaks. Through his devotion to the Lord; his diligence in prayers and in studying the word, Boniface had been sowing to the spirit, and he was now reaping the dividends of eternal life. The manifestation of this life was the reason why he could now easily cast out demons, heal the sick, walk in divine health himself, etc. Even his academics was affected by this life. He was not particularly a bright student, but after his encounter with eternal life, his understanding opened and he became a top student in his school.

Both Frank and Boniface received eternal life as a seed when they believed in Christ Jesus, but Boniface was diligent in sowing to the spirit by giving God priority in His life and doing the things that built up his spirit man. Because of this, his spirit(inner) man became strong and robust, and the eternal life in his spirit could now dominate even his visible life.

Go into today remembering the words of today's scripture. Be deliberate and intentional about sowing to the Spirit.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, please help me sow to the Spirit and not to the flesh. Help me walk in the reality and power of your eternal life.
—Abraham Dami Arigi
