Galatians 6:7-8 Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
The Apostle Paul starts off by saying "do not be deceived". In other words, do not be mislead, do not be trapped into wrong thinking by believing that you can trick or deceive God concerning the life you live for our life is a open book before God.
The fruit which I reap will be consistent with the seed I have sown. I cannot live my life one way and expect to receive a different kind of reward. I cannot walk this earth the way I please and expect God to be pleased in the end.
What are you sowing? Is it the Word of God? Is it the love of God? Are you sowing your time, talent, resources in kingdom building? Are you praying for others, are you serving where there is a need? What is it that you are sowing?
Are you sowing to the flesh? Have you become your own God with your own truth? Are you living according to what is right in your own eyes. My will, my way, my opinion, my truth, me, myself and I is what you are sowing? These kind of seeds that are sowed to the flesh will produce a corrupt harvest of destruction and separation in eternity.
This text is a warning and a reminder that I must watch what kind of seeds I am sowing and that I should remember that in all I am doing, I am sowing seeds and that I will reap the harvest of the seeds I have sown. Apple for apple and banana for banana, nothing different.
Have you convinced yourselves that you can live your life daily in disobedience, disrespect and rejection of God and His word and reap God's heaven when we die?
Do we truly believe that we can sow to the flesh and reap spiritual rewards once we transition from earth to eternity?
BE NOT DECEIVED! This is your warning to seek out truth that can only be found in God's Word.
Let me leave you with this quote. You are free to make the choice, but you are NOT free from the consequences of the seeds you sow.
God bless and heed the warning of the Apostle Paul on today for these words will help save your life.
