An ‘obligation’ is an oath, a commitment, a responsibility. In other words we have a commitment to sow (set in motion, to plant) towards the things of the Spirit. “For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” Read Galatians 6:8.
God’s word is the fuel and the catalyst for sowing to the Spirit, selah! (pause and calmly think). Scripture tells us “Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provisions for the flesh” Read Romans 13:14. The person who sows is entitled to eat, but the question is what are you eating? What you eat is entirely up to what you sow and where you sow it
Are you eating the bread of sorrows because you have sown to the flesh? Or are you eating the bread of eternal life in Christ Jesus? This is now becoming a fundamental question, not only in Christiandom but also in our day to day interaction with the universe. We see societies decimated by corrupt practices, corrupt elected officials, corrupt systems and right before us, we can see the devastating effects. You might be wondering what is eternal life? Simply put, eternal life is “Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Hope comes from no where else other than from God, and in His Resurrection.
When we sow to the Spirit, we become established more and more in God’s love for humanity (you and I and others who would dare to embrace His loving kindness). Eternal life is yours, the life of grace is our experience, the life of overflowing joy is ours even in the midst of chaos, above all the resurrection life is ours in the Name of Jesus. We are risen together with Him, and we are one together with Him.

One thought on “We have an obligation: Sow to the Spirit – Part 2”
Sowing into one’s life is an important part of our existence but in today’s world, we tend to sow into the world forgetting the true ways of the scripture. God will give us the guidance and willpower to follow his words in Jesus name, Amen.
