We Are Fooling Ourselves If We Believe:
- God can be mocked. The scripture says: “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked…” (Gal 6:7)
To think that we can “turn up our nose to a loving God, sneer at or treat Him with contempt” without final retribution, is to fool ourselves. He may not do anything now in this life; but, one day we will face Him as our final Judge. He will deal with us then! There’ll be no escape!
- We will not reap what we sow. Gal 6:7 also says, “for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to the flesh will of the flesh reap corruption.”
To think that we can sow our “wild oats” and not suffer eternal consequences, is like the fool who jumps off the cliff thinking he can beat the law of gravity by just flapping his arms. He’s going to end up dead!
But, God promises, “he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.” Begin living the Christian life today. Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins.
