Be Not Deceived; God Is Not Mocked
Pastor Ian Potts

51 min | Galatians 6:7-8
Galatians 6:7 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.
Comment: What an amazing tracing out of the Christian experience by Pastor Potts; what a Godly exhortation to adorn the Gospel of Christ, not through law-work — but by grace through the leadings and workings of the Spirit of Life; what a needful differentiation between the Law of Moses (and those who try to follow it) and the Law of Christ (and those who are led forth in it by the grace, mercy, and effectual working of God); what a needful warning to those who think they have eternal life but mistake their efforts to keep the moral law (and to be guided by it) as spiritual fruit and evidences of their salvation (so-called). This is truly experimental, practical, God-honouring preaching.
