210 SWA'S SERMOSWith this thought in mind take a look at mytext. In it are plainly indicated a first and a sec-ond harvest. The subject of the chastisement of God's people is being talked about by the apostle.The first harvest of such chastisement is that of pain and sorrow, but the secondary harvest, oraftermath, is the fruit of righteousness. Thisfruit is joy, peace, longsuffering, the friendshipof God and angels, power, glory and life immor-tal. This brings to mind the curious fact thatboth in religion and nature the first harvest maybe entirely unlike the second one.Let us think of the aftermath under the follow-ing heads :1. EVERYTHIG has a first and a secondharvest.2. Comparative importance of the two har-vests.3. A plea for IVOLUTARY reapers of theaftermath.1. Everything has a first and a second harvest.I have three distinct and outstanding facts thatI want to impress in this sermon.1. Everything has a first and a secondaryharvest.2. The aftermath, or second harvest is theall-important one.3. The Devil uses the first harvest to fool peo-ple.
