184: Sowing and Reaping: What is the “Harvest” Jesus Talked About?

Unless seeds are planted, watered, and given enough time for growth, there is little expectation of a harvest. That’s how it works in farming; it seems it is similar with people and their faith.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we discuss the spiritual metaphor of sowing and reaping. Is it possible to do any reaping if there’s been no sowing done before us? And what is the “harvest” that Jesus actually talked about?

This topic gained quite a bit of traction and interest when we posted it on the Lifeschool Facebook group. And it appears that while harvesting is where the “action” is, Christians are often unsure how to do it and are left curious about previous seed sowing efforts that would lead to a spiritual harvest in a person’s life.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • What Jesus taught about the amount of “fruit” that is ready to be harvested.
  • The harvest Jesus was actually talking about and interested in. (It’s different than you were taught.)
  • What constitutes “sowing seeds”.
  • Why sowing and reaping is an ongoing cycle (like on a farm), not a once-and-done type of thing.

“Are you looking to “close the deal” or give your life away? Seeking to get a “decision for Christ” or invite people into your family–God’s family–and lay your life down for them?”
