Galatians 6:8-10 (NIV) – Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Walking by the Spirit, life in the Spirit is doing good; a harvest of eternal life comes by the Spirit, these two are inseparable. Life in the Spirit not necessarily “feel good” moments, but don’t let it stop you from doing good. As Pastor Mark shared the example from Sunday – in learning to be a servant leader and allowing others to be served first – eating last may be painful, but do not lose heart! Don’t let it stop you from serving others as we are living for the kingdom!
Let us pray, “Lord, lead us more in doing good, so it can flow out of me to others. Thank you that your Spirit lives in me and I can love you like this with my actions and my lips.”
