Some time ago, Ann Landers published a letter from a prison inmate.
It was a pathetic letter that really tugged at your emotions, written by a man whose mother had just died, & he couldn’t attend her funeral because he was in prison.
He wrote, not to complain about the legal system, because he said that he really did deserve what he was getting.
But he wrote to tell the story of his life, how his mother’s one wish was that he would be released from prison before she died.
And how that one wish was never realized.
He said, "The reason I am in prison is because I thought I could take shortcuts, that somehow I could ignore the rules & regulations, & get away with it completely."
But he didn’t, & you really never do.
Sin will take you farther than you want to go, cost you more than you want to pay, and keep you longer than you want to stay!
· The Law of Sowing and Reaping
o Law #1: You Reap What You’ve Sown
o Law #2 You Reap Where You’ve Sown
o Law #3 You Reap More Than you’ve Sown
Don’t Play Games With God, v.7
There is no way for you and I to fool God.
He sees right through the games that we play.
So if you are one that plays the church game, you more about churchianty instead of true Christianity, God see it.
The truth is that we will never be able to deceive God.
So don’t be deceiving yourself in thinking that you can.
We may have those around us fooled, we may have people in church fooled and we may have ourselves fooled but we will never be able to fool God.
Remember that God knows everything there is to know about you.
He knows all of your deepest, darkest secrets.
There is nothing He does not know about you.
This can seem kind of frightening when you stop to think about it.
Those things about you that no one knows, God knows them.
When you begin to understand that God is all knowing and there is nothing that ever gets past his view point it can bring much comfort as well as confidence.
Because God is truly watching over you.
So God is not Mocked is He?
But what does does it say before that in v.7?
There is a Deceiver
Satan, “…which deceiveth the whole world…” Rev. 12:3-9
Satan “…the father of lies.’
John 8:44
He deceived Eve into disobeying God.
Gen 3
He deceives Christians into believing there will be a great revival before the rapture. 2 Thess.
2:3; Matt.
24:23-25
So we see in this passage in Gal.
6 that there is a deceiver and we are to not be deceived by him and there is also something else we are instructed to know...
Don’t Deny The Inevitable, 8
Honestly, this seems like basic common sense.
Would we think that we would harvest onions when we planted tomatoes?
No one would be so foolish.
So why do we think that we can continue to live in a sinful manner and still be able to be please God? Godliness and ungodliness will never mix.
There will never be a moment that we can think we can live for ourselves and still be living for God.
In fact, some Christians spend the first six days of each week sowing their wild oats, then they go to church on Sunday and pray for a crop failure."
A. If you sow to the flesh…
You reap corruption
you are not going to have crop failure you are going to have corruption.

You Reap Everlasting Life
Notice that ‘the Spirit’ is the Holy Spirit
The truth being told here is that you truly do reap what you sow.
You, sow sin, self, flesh, anger, disappointment, wrath, you will reap the very say thing.
If you sow love, joy, peace, kindness, self control, the very fruits of the spirit we covered in the message last week.
Gal.
5:22 your will reap those things in your life as well in due time.
So don’t grow weary in sowing those the seeds of the Spirit.
v9.
“For in due season we shall reap if we don’t not lose heart.”
We Sow To The Spirit when…
1.
We Do His Work - Eph. 2:10

Conc.
· It’s not a matter of if you’re reaping what you’ve sown, but rather, do you like what you’re reaping?
· “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
· If you like what you’re reaping, keep sowing what you’re sowing.
· If you don’t like what you’re reaping, starting sowing something different!
