Reaping And Sowing In Our Future Part 2

Reaping And Sowing In Our Future Part 2 by Keith Cook

"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary." Galatians 6:9

Yesterday we saw how we can sow Love and Stability. Today, let us look deeper into sowing for our future. God says we will reap what we have sown. The Bible says we can sow into people's lives, we can share into people's lives, and we can be a blessing in someone's life.

3. We need to sow Faith - By sowing into other people's lives we can help their faith grow stronger. When we help someone trust God and see God work in their lives we have helped them prepare for their future life with Christ.

Think about which individual brings out the best in you? Who encourages you to trust and believe God for great visions and dreams? In my life it is probably Shad Williams. Shad is a crazy evangelist who travels all over the world sharing Christ. Several times a year we minister together in crusades in Kenya or India and God always uses Shad to build up my faith.

I will never forget years ago sitting in a Kroger grocery store parking lot with Shad. We both had just gotten in from projects overseas and we had very little money. Our wives had sent us to get groceries. We pooled our pennies and bought a box of crackers. We both were in tears leaving the grocery store.

On the way back to his house Shad started telling war stories. Now war stories are stories about great things God had done in our lives while working for God. We quickly were laughing and both were trying to one up the other as to who could tell the greatest illustration of God's provision. By the time we finally came in from the store we both were full of renewed hope and confidence in our calling, our God, and our faith.

Upon entering the house we discovered that the girls had found some food and had cooked up a great meal. We all rejoiced. The next day when Joan and I returned to our house we discovered that one of our friends had gone out and shopped for food for us and had left well over three hundred dollars worth of groceries in our kitchen.

God had worked a great miracle. Why? Because a faith sower had shared into our lives. Why not start sowing faith into people's lives? Be used of God to move people beyond pity and self-absorption into faith and trust in God and His faithfulness.

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that you can live by faith today and in the future. Sow faith. Encourage others to live by faith.

On The Go Prayer Focus: The GoTeam Short Term Missions Projects and GoTeam Members. GoTeams are made up of young people and adults who voluntarily go on an On The Go mission project around the world and are making a strategic impact for Christ. .
