Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.  Galatians 6:7-10

God’s kingdom is built upon a principle of sowing and reaping.  If we sow to the flesh which means we spend our lives indulging and chasing after the desires of the sinful nature, we will reap destruction in the end.  If we sow to the Spirit which means we spend our lives pursuing the Lord and His kingdom, in the end will lead to eternal life.

There are some in this world who believe there are no consequences for their lives or their actions.  But God will not be mocked and those who use their lives to indulge in wickedness and destroy the lives of others will themselves receive their due reward when they stand before the Lord someday.

There is a great harvest that awaits those who persevere and endure till the end.  As we continue to sow to the Spirit and live our lives for God and His kingdom we will in this life face many challenges and trials.  But there awaits a mighty harvest before us.  The greatest battle we will face as we pursue the Lord and His will for our lives is the lies of the enemy.  The enemy will try to deceive and paralyze us with discouragement, fear, and doubt.  But all of it is a lie and deception.

We are called to do good to all people.  If we truly have genuine faith in Jesus Christ then the result of our faith should be the works that we accomplish in our lives for God’s kingdom.  God has created us with purpose and destiny.  As we seek Him that destiny is revealed.  When we come to understand the principle of sowing and reaping we will understand the importance of our lives aligning with God and His kingdom.  When we come to Christ our lives are no longer our own.  May we continue to press on toward the high call in Christ Jesus.
