2019 07 07: Sowing and Reaping

When we sow to the Spirit, it’s like we’re reaching out our hand and asking Jesus to deliver us from evil and make us new, born again, set free.  When we pray, we’re not just working on ourselves to become more meditative or spiritual.  We’re asking the sovereign power of God to reach into our lives and renew our hearts and reach into the world around us and make it more like God’s kingdom.  When we worship, we’re not just coming to hear about how to be a better person.  We’re joining in the one sacrifice for sin in Christ by which we’re made children of God our Father, making our dwelling-place to be in Christ and he in us.
