    2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago,

    3 but at the proper time manifested, even His word, in the proclamation with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior,

    Sins have Consequences

    Sins have Consequences

    In this sermon, the pastor explores the theme of consequences of sin and the importance of living a life aligned with the Holy Spirit, based on Galatians 6:6-10. He starts by expressing gratitude for the community’s engagement and shares his prayers for their spiritual growth. He highlights the miraculous events occurring within the congregation and expresses a desire for such transformations to impact everyone deeply.

    The sermon emphasizes that sins have consequences, a lesson the pastor found life-changing. He discusses Galatians 6:6-10, explaining that these verses teach the principle of sowing and reaping in both a moral and spiritual context. He underscores that what believers sow in their spiritual lives, they will also reap. Those who sow in the flesh will experience corruption, while those who sow to the Spirit will reap eternal life.

    He stresses the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ but clarifies that while sins are forgiven, they still carry consequences. This dynamic illustrates the natural law of reaping what one sows. The pastor reflects on his own spiritual journey and encourages the congregation to make deliberate choices to sow to the Spirit rather than the flesh. He uses personal anecdotes to emphasize how his life was transformed by adhering to this principle.

    The pastor also reflects on the communal aspect of the faith journey, highlighting the importance of supporting one another and especially those within the household of faith. He points out that the entirety of a believer’s life provides an opportunity to do good and serve others, emphasizing that this should be a primary focus.

    He concludes with a call to action, urging members and viewers to commit to living in alignment with God's will, sowing into the Spirit, and embracing the life changes that come with truly following Jesus. He offers a prayer for anyone who might feel moved to dedicate or rededicate their lives to Christ, emphasizing the transformative power of living in accordance with the Holy Spirit.
