Wesley's Notes for Galatians 6:7


6:7 God is not mocked - Although they attempt to mock him, who think to reap otherwise than they sow.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 6:7


Ga 6:7 Be not deceived. Men often are. God is not mocked. They do fancy that God may be mocked. The immutable law of the spiritual kingdom shows that he is not. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. A law not only of the vegetable world, but of our bodies and spirits. Habit is only an illustration of this law. The delirium tremens on the one hand, and the purity of the aged saint on the other are due to the action of this law.

    It means just what it says. Just because your a Christian does not mean you can purposely sin and not be held accountable. Too many believers today claim because they accepted Christ or believe in Him, they are excused of any and all sin. Bare in mind that Galatians was written after the cross and it is because of Calvary that we are not to sin, and if or when we do we must ask forgiveness... out life must change, we do not walk in our old ways when we receive Jesus, we clean our act up and walk in newness of life.

    Verse nine-look at Gladys Alward , this verse points to her life. Even though God wanted her to go to China, He didn't make it easy for her. She still did God's will. What a testimony of faith!
