Are we called to have faith in a God that is absent from our lives? Did He set everything into motion and just leave us to figure out our own path? Has God left us to our own devices? This reminds me of a child who spins a top and lets it spin out of control only to crash into the wall, teeter, totter, and ultimately fall. Is this the way God interacts with His creation? Not at all. Because God is Faithful. When life gets hard, we mess up, we sin - He is still there, loving us. God is still faithful when: · I'm ungrateful for the blessings He's given · I put other desires above Him · I forget to pray/study my Bible · I'm struggling with temptation or sin · I doubt His goodness, or even His existence 2 Timothy 2:11-13 shows us: “The saying is trustworthy, for: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful for he cannot deny himself.” If we turn our back on God in denial, He will also deny us, but His faithfulness shows He will take us back. Why would God do this? It comes down to His promise. Do a search on God’s promises in the Bible and you will be overwhelmed by this theme throughout its beautiful pages. God promised Abraham that through his line all the earth would be blessed. God told Abraham to leave Ur and go to a place He would tell him. That place became known as the Promised Land. God is faithful to us because He is staying true to His promise. God will always hold up His end of the deal (2 Timothy 2:13). We must do our best to uphold our end of the deal and walk in faith and obedience until Jesus returns. “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed” (2 Peter 3:9-10). This passage shows that God has faith in us, but we must return this faith to Him. “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). It will be challenging to have such a faith, and we will be tempted to give up. My favorite passage concerning the faithfulness of God is found in 1 Corinthians 10:13. “No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” God is Faithful.

Paul’s choice of words (as led by the Holy Spirit) is intriguing. The word “deceive” is from the Greek ma planasthe which means “to go astray; be misled; wander away.” The Galatians were in danger of being led astray to believing they could sow a life of not caring for their fellow Christians and still reap a life of blessings from God. However, Paul also tells us that “God is not mocked.” This particular word in the Greek is mukterizo from mukter meaning “nose.” The idea is that “one can- not turn up his nose at; one cannot sneer at God, or treat Him with contempt.” Paul is not saying that such actions would be impossible for men to do, only that men cannot do these things with impunity. They will answer to God for the life they have chosen to lead. There is this law of harvest. “For whatsoever a man sows, this he will also reap.” Paul expands upon this law and tells us “For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life” (Gal. 6:8). There are two sowings and two reapings. To sow to the flesh is to give in to the desires of the flesh and the harvest would be “ruin, destruction, dissolution or deterioration.” If we feed our physical body trash we will reap a harvest of poor health. If we feed our spirit trash following after the ways of the flesh we can expect only a harvest of suffering. In speaking of the fruit of Israel’s sin, Hosea said, “For they sow the wind, and they reap the whirlwind” (Hosea 8:7a). In sowing to the flesh we not only reap corruption we reap more than we sow. Israel had sown a gentle breeze but they would reap a tornado. Israel’s reaping would be far more de- structive. When John wrote of the destruction of Jerusa- lem in the book of Revelation he said, “For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 "Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her” (Rev. 18:5, 6). Again the reaping of her harvest for the sin she had sown would be twice that of her works. But there is the second reaping in keeping with the same law. If we sow to the Spirit we shall of the Spirit reap eternal life! If we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, if we believe in Jesus, so as to repent of our sins, confess Him before men and be buried with Him in bap- tism we have our past sins forgiven. If we live faithful to Him until death we will receive the crown of life! What you are sowing will determine what you will reap. If we can assist you in sowing to the Spirit that you might reap eternal life please let that be made known now by com- ing forward while we stand and sing.

God Bless, Joyce Henson Thank you to each person who filled shoebox gifts for the children of Panama. You did an excellent job! Keep in mind that a young child in a very poor area of Panama will open the box that you filled and marvel at the gifts that you sent from the United States-just for them. We appreciate Brianna Couch so much for offering to initiate the project at Deerfoot. She is a fine Christian young lady, and I am sure that you are proud of her accomplishments. God Bless you all! Sara Bills, Coordinator, Operation Christmas Joy, Larry Brady, Director of Panama Mission, Salem Church of Christ Ladies Ladies please fill out your “Will Do Sheets” And return them to the box in the foyer by November 10.
