Exponential Sowing and Reaping.

"One Year Bible" New Testament Passage (for Fri., Sept. 21, 2012)
Galatians 6:1-18

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart Galatians 6:7-9 (NKJV)

You are closer to a breakthrough than you realise. It sometimes seems that life is a succession of WAITING. But, it is far more than that. 

Life is a succession of decisions. We, each of us, are building our future right now. You are planting seeds by your decisions and your actions. What you sow, you will reap. 

But, once again, we must go further. This "sowing and reaping" thing is EXPONENTIAL. We don't just get what we sow. God operates BY GRACE to give you far more than you deserve. The rewards are beyond what we could ask or think. 

If this were investments, it would be like investing one dollar and reaping a FORTUNE. That's the way God works. Therefore, the apostle encourages us to not let up or slow down. KEEP INVESTING. 

Conversely, the flesh pays back IN KIND as well. The lesson is clear. Our actions set a trajectory of reward. God LOVES to take our little bit and multiply it many times over. The rewards outweigh the 
offering. In the same way, the fruit of the flesh never justifies the temporary moment of sinful 
pleasure. DON'T LOSE HEART. Your breakthrough is nearer than you think.
