Be Not Deceived, God is NOT Mocked!
Be Not Deceived; God is not Mocked!
King James Version
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
Have you ever put your hand on something hot when you were little? My Mama tells me when I was about three it was really cold outside, and she opened the stove to let the heat come in. I walked over to that pretty, golden rod and grabbed it! Ouch! I was burned. Ever been stung by a bee? Your Pastor used to go barefoot all the time, I mean I am a born and raised Tennessean! One day while walking barefoot in the grass I stepped on a Bee and hopped all the way to the house. I don’t think I went barefoot for years, but in Hawaii…everybody is barefoot on the beach right? I was walking on the sand and somebody had buried a fire that had not gone out…Ouch…I was burned again. So understand me when I tell you, you can go barefoot if you want…Pastor will not ever go barefoot outside again! Why, because I learned that there are consequences! Paul was warning the Church that there are consequences for living a Worldly life in the flesh and that consequence is corruption…not the pollical or business type, but the decay that happens when flesh rots and comes out of body from a wound when it is not clean! This morning I want us to see the dangers for Christians living a Worldly life…the Consequences and for those who do not have Christ as Savior, the consequences of rejecting God’s gift of Eternal Life! What a Wonderful Mother's Day and what a blessing the music from Dan and Emma! Hope to see you Wednesday as we study the Commandments of Christ and if you have a friend that needs Jesus, This Sunday is the time to bring them along.
Love you all,
