The Harvest Principle

Harvest Principle

The Harvest Principle is a simple concept: you reap what you
sow. We learn this basic principle of life from agriculture and
farming. Now, when it comes to our lives, this principle
reminds holds true. Our actions matter and will impact our
life's outcomes. What we do, or fail to do, now impacts our

In this week we kick off the message series. Our present
circumstances are largely determined by our past choices and
decisions. We reap the small choices and decisions in the
present that we have made in the past. Our introduction to
the series describes the principle and how we can get it
working for us and how the principle interplays with grace.

Week Two: Vocation

A vocation is a call from God about the most fundamental direction of my life. God desires to bring about a rich harvest in us of holiness and virtue. Faithfully living our vocations is the truest path to reaping this harvest.

Week Three: Mark 12:41-44

In this week’s message, we again look at the principle of “we reap what we sow”. When it comes to our time, talent and treasure, we are all called to use the gifts God has given us. The seeds we sow now will make an eternal impact in our lives and the lives of others. We don’t just devote all we have in the present, but sow seeds for the future. With this in mind we reflect on the importance of investing both in our earthly and heavenly futures by utilizing our time, talent and treasure.

Scripture: Mark 13:24-32
In this fourth week, we look at how we are sowing wisdom for ourselves, especially when it comes to God’s Word. Spending time in God’s Word leads to greater wisdom and right action in our lives. Jesus says that the world will pass away, but his words will last forever. By investing in God’s Word we invest in our eternal futures.

El Principio de Cosecha

El Principio de Cosecha es un concepto simple: cosechas lo
que siembras. Aprendemos este principio básico de la vida de
la agricultura y la agricultura. Ahora, cuando se trata de
nuestras vidas, este principio recuerda que es verdad.
Nuestras acciones importan e impactarán los resultados de
nuestra vida. Lo que hacemos o dejamos de hacer ahora
afecta nuestro futuro.

En esta semana comenzamos la serie de mensajes.
Nuestras circunstancias actuales están en gran parte
determinadas por nuestras elecciones y decisiones
pasadas. Recogemos las pequeñas elecciones y
decisiones en el presente que hemos hecho en el
pasado. Nuestra introducción a la serie describe el
principio y cómo podemos hacerlo funcionar para
nosotros y cómo el principio interactúa con la gracia.

Una vocación es una llamada de Dios sobre la dirección más fundamental de mi vida. Dios desea producir en nosotros una rica cosecha de santidad y virtud. En vivir fielmente nuestras vocaciones es el camino más verdadero para cosechar esta cosecha.

Tercera semana: Marcos 12:41-44

En el mensaje de esta semana, volvemos a mirar el principio de “Cosechamos lo que sembramos”. Cuando se trata de nuestro tiempo, talento y tesoro, todos estamos llamados a usar los dones que Dios nos ha dado. Las semillas que sembramos ahora harán un impacto eterno en nuestras vidas y en las vidas de los demás. No sólo dedicamos todo lo que tenemos en el presente, sino sembramos semillas para el futuro. Con esto en mente reflexionamos sobre la importancia de invertir tanto en nuestros futuros terrenales y celestiales utilizando nuestro tiempo.

Cuarta semana: Sabiduría / Aprendiendo la Palabra de Dios

Haga clic aquí para descargar el folleto de la primera semana.

Escritura: Marcos 13: 24-32

En esta cuarta semana, observamos cómo estamos sembrando sabiduría para nosotros mismos, especialmente cuando se trata de la Palabra de Dios. Pasar tiempo en la Palabra de Dios lleva a una mayor sabiduría y acción correcta en nuestras vidas. Jesús dice que el mundo pasará, pero sus palabras durarán para siempre. Al invertir en la Palabra de Dios, invertimos en nuestros futuros eternos.
