Welcome 

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
(Gal 6:9)
 
This Scripture has been such an encouragement to me but especially during these days of COVID-19. (Gal 6:9) is part of a lager context reaching back to    (Gal 5)  The Apostle Paul uses agricultural terms,  “sowing & reaping”  which describe a physical law, to teach a Divine & Spiritual Law.  (Gal 6:7-8)  It’s important for us to notice that though Paul is talking about growing  “weary”  in  (vs9)  he is connecting our weariness to doing  “good.”  {kalos}  meaning beautiful. Paul is saying here it can become hard-discouraging-tiring doing what is good or right in God’s eyes. True obedience to Jesus comes at a cost, especially during hard times or when everything, and everyone, seem against you. 
 
This is a word of encouragement to those who walk with Jesus everyday and there never seems to be fruit to show for it. Our greatest reward is that of eternal life bought for us by Jesus on the Cross. Or maybe you have been praying about something or someone for a long time and haven’t got an answer yet. Maybe you feel like you take one step forward and three steps back. What’s really difficult is when you are living for God and doing good and those around you are not. It seems that the more bad they do the better off they are. Or maybe this corona virus has taken its toll on you and your family and you are tempted to throw your hands in the air and scream,  “Well if you can’t beat them join them!”  
 
God is saying,...”Don’t stop! Keep doing good. I see you.”  I want to encourage you today towards faithfulness because you cannot discern the depth of what Jesus is doing in, through and with your life.  There are three truths concerning the divine law of sowing and reaping. 1) Like begets like. What are you sowing? 2) The more one sows, the more one reaps. (2Cor 9:6) “But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”  3) One reaps more than one sows. The effects of sin are greater than the sin itself. The effects of obedience are greater than the obedience itself.  Jesus is the Lord of the harvest. Trust in Him not in your sight or circumstances. Be encouraged today and keep going!
