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.

    Galatians 6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. being born again child of God, the new creature inside me can not sin, it's the Holy Spirit of God. Now the flesh does sin, that's why we have to read the Word of God to get a good washing . Amen

    Verse 5: Each of us have various burdens that we must carry. We should try to simplify our life as much as possible and get rid of unnecessary burdens we may be carrying.

    Vs 4-5
    From time to time we should do a self examination to see how we are measuring up to God's standards. Hopefully, it will be a cause of rejoicing. If we see we need improvement, then let's strive to make changes in our lives to live up to what God expects of us. By being balanced we will not compare ourselves to others for we all must carry our own load.
