Invitation and cultivating the Fruits of the Spirit
Finally, Galatians chapter 6 verses 7—10 read, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction;
the one who 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
As a man thinks so is he says Proverbs
the thought Jesus left us with was Go and make disciples
the act of invitation is a blossom of that thought
and its fruit are acceptance and rejection.
Through both acceptance and rejection we can cultivate the fruits of the spirit
love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, meekness, faithfulness, self-control and kindness.
But through rejection we can cultivate other fruit
hate, apathy, impatience, discouragement, shame, jealousy,
blame, unworthiness, perfectionism and conflict avoidance.
Let us not weary of inviting for if we do not give up we will reap a harvest
