Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.

The focus for the coming few Sunday mornings is evangelism, sharing the gospel with a sense of urgency, seeking to persuade the uncommitted and non believers to put their faith in Jesus Christ. 

The theme is “Today Is the Day of Salvation.”

Today we are talking about Harvest time.

Even though we may not all be farmers, in fact some of us may have never planted anything in our lives, we will all harvest in the future. 

The apostle Paul painted a picture of our life as an opportunity to plant in one of two fields.

In the first field we all have an opportunity to do our planting in the realm of our fleshly nature. 

And in the second field we all have the opportunity to plant in the realm of our spiritual nature.

Paul pictured life as an opportunity to read the harvest. We will reaper harvest in the area of our fleshly nature if that has been the area in which we have done our planting. 

We will reaper harvest in the realm of the spirit if we have been sewing to the Spirit.

It is highly possible that many of us have not interpreted the words of our text as fully as we should have. 

The apostle Paul was not speaking primarily to non-believers in this text. 

He’s warning believers against the peril of living only in the dimension of their fleshly nature. 

Many of us may be sowing only in the realm of the flesh and maybe totally neglecting the spirit.

The words of our text should speak loudly both to the unsaved person who sows only in the realm of the flesh and to the saved person who faces the peril of neglecting the Spirit while sowing to the fleshly nature.

Until next time

Stay in the Blessings

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.

When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.

Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at

When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.
