- HARVEST is not perpetual.
- HARVEST is seasonal.
- No preparation = No HARVEST
BASIC STEPS OF FARMING
- Prepare the Soil
- Sow Seeds
- Weed and Feed
We must look beyond the hype and headlines of harvest.
Matthew 9:37–38 (ESV)
37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;
38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Galatians 6:7–9 (ESV)
7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
8 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.
9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
- HARVEST doesn’t happen by ACCIDENT.
Proverbs 22:8 (MSG)
8 Whoever sows sin reaps weeds.
2 Corinthians 9:6 (ESV)
6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
