God’s love controls us (2Co 5:14) and His grace teaches us (Tit 2:11)to live the good life.
Tit 2:11-12 GNB For God has revealed his grace for the salvation of all people. 12 That grace instructs us to give up ungodly living and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this world,
Once we accept that God has brought us back into right standing with Him by making Jesus our righteousness, wisdom, redemption and sanctification, we are ready to prepare ourselves to sow. God still desires you to be fruitful and multiply so He made you complete in Christ Jesus.
Col 2:8-10 KJV Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
1Co 1:30 KJV 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Joh 15:7-8 KJV If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Here in is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shallye be my disciples.
Satan’s main weapon to keep you from sowing or even preparing to sow is to keep you ignorant of the truth that you are the very righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Satan knows that once you accept the truth that God has made you righteous, you will begin to sow the Word of God and bring forth the harvest God has predestined you to produce. Do not be deceived by Satan or religious doctrine that would have you working to be right with God based on your works or your sinning or not sinning.
Rom 10:3 AMP For being ignorantof the righteousness that God ascribes [which makes one acceptable to Him in word, thought, and deed] and seeking to establish a righteousness (a means of salvation) of their own, they did not obey or submit themselves to God’s righteousness.
Php 3:9 KJV And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
The scriptures reveal that we are righteous by faith in Christ Jesus. With this in mind we will be ready to sow and reap the one hundred fold return when we understand the meaning of both righteousness and faith according to the scriptures. Let us start with faith and then sow in righteousness.
