7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. (Galatians 6:7-8)
It is not as if we do not know this simple principle – we reap according to what we have sown. Nonetheless, sin can deceive us into thinking this timeless truth does not apply to us in spiritual matters. Untold millions upon millions are unwilling to admit “the wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). They convince themselves they can plant the seeds of sinful living yet reap the harvest of eternal life. But, God will not be mocked. We cannot live like the devil on His earth and expect Him to usher us into His heaven (a place of holiness, undefiled by sin). What you will reap on that last great day depends on what you plant today. Where will you spend your eternity?
