"Harvesting What You Plant"

“Harvesting What You Plant”

You cannot fool God, so don’t make a fool of yourself!  You will harvest what you plant.  If you follow your selfish desires, you will harvest destruction, but if you follow the Spirit, you will harvest eternal life.      Galatians 6:7-8

There are some people who think that they can fool God, by trying to live on both sides of the fence, so to speak, they claim to be a Christian, but their lifestyle does not reflect that at all.  Just saying you are a Christian, does not make you one.

The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Galatians, speaks of a HARVEST time, when we all will reap what we plant.  If anyone follows their selfish, sinful desires, they will reap DESTRUCTION, but if you plant righteous things that comes from following the Spirit you will HARVEST ETERNAL LIFE.

You cannot plant both and hope for a bumper crop.  The weeds of selfish, sinful desires will choke out the tender, righteous, desires of the Spirit, and you will end up with crop failure and will HARVEST DESTRUCTION.    

If you have been trying to live a double life and are hard at work, trying to fool God and others by striving to live on both sides of the fence, you need to know that you are headed for FAILURE and DESTRUCTION.  Your HARVEST is NOT going to be what you might think it should be, and your destination is a place called HELL.  A place of misery, heartache, unending pain, torment, and torture.  Those are the things an UNREPENTANT HEART will HARVEST.  However, you can change your lifestyle and live on the RIGHT side of the fence, by following the Spirit of God, and Him ONLY.  You do that by:  Confessing your sins to God and asking Him for His forgiveness, believing, with ALL your Heart, that Jesus died for you, and is alive in Heaven making intercession for you, before God, then accept His gift of SALVATION, and STOP trying to fool God, and start planting the righteous desires of the Spirit and harvest ETERNAL LIFE.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!
