Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow
Paul has been instructing people in Galatia who were being told they needed to be circumcised to be Christians. They were misinformed. In this verse Paul gives a warning both to those who instructed Christians to be circumcised and those who chose to follow that instruction. They were both in error.
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked…”
There are consequences to the choices we make in this life. We may not see the consequences right away, but in the Day of the Lord (when Jesus returns to judge the living and the dead), all that is hidden will be made known and we will be held to account for the paths that we’ve chosen.
I’ll be honest – that’s a scary proposition. There are many paths I’ve followed over the years I’m not proud of. Left to the merit of my life choices I would be in big trouble. God is not mocked. Believe it friend.
Lord Jesus have mercy on me, a sinner. Forgive my sins and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Amen.
