Crop Sowing and Reaping Pt. 2

Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the Lord Until He comes to rain righteousness on you. Hosea 10:12 NASB

Sow with a view to righteousness,
Sow: to scatter (seed) over land, earth, etc., for growth; plant.

Everyday we have encounters with someone. Opportunity to scatter the seed of righteousness. Are you aware of your daily encounters with people? Is the Word of God so implanted in your heart and mind that your view is to righteousness with each encounter?

Reap in accordance with kindness;
Reap: to gather or take (a crop, harvest, etc.).

People. God’s creation. Everyone a God created being. Do we treat each person we encounter with kindness? Seeking to reap, harvest, gather their soul for the kingdom of God?

Then He *said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:37-38 (NASB)

And He was saying to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Luke 10:2 (NASB)

Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. John 4:35 (NASB)

Break up your fallow ground,
Fallow: not in use; inactive

Is our “Christianity” inactive? Are we content with the current nature of our being? Our surroundings? Our interactions with others? Do we have a deep concern for the spiritual condition of others or are we content that “I am saved”?

It’s time for us to break up our fallow ground.

How?!

For it is time to seek the Lord until He comes to rain righteousness on you.

When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.” Psalm 27:8

Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face continually. Psalm 105:4

It is only by the power of the Holy Spirit in us and our surrender for the use by God to sow and reap for a harvest of righteousness within us.

Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; 2 Corinthians 9:10 (NASB)

Continually Seeking Him,
