SERMON SERIES: Galatians

SERMON TITLE: “How Today Defines Our Tomorrows”

Galatians 6:6-10

 

This week, Pastor David continued the "Galatians” sermon series by sharing about how our current actions determine our future.

 

  • While this truth is often contested in our culture, Pastor David explained that our tomorrows are shaped in part by the decisions we make today. When are you tempted to think that you are not responsible for the choices you are making?
  • You can plant the seeds of your life in one of two places: in the flesh (sinful dispositions, nature, focus on self) or in the Spirit (goodness that flows from God’s grace). Where are you planting the seeds of your life?
  • Identify a need for someone else that you could meet this week. What will be the “harvest” of your meeting that need?

ADDITIONAL DISCOVERY:

 

Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

~ Galatians 6:6-10

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone and especially to those who are of the household of faith.

~ Galatians 6:9-10

 

“Every time we allow our mind to harbor a grudge, nurse a grievance, entertain an impure thought, or wallow in self-pity, we are sowing to the flesh. Every time we linger in bad company. Every time we lie in bed when we ought to be up praying, every time we gaze upon pornographic material, every time we take a risk which-strains our self-control, we are sowing, sowing, sowing to the flesh."
