My Musings – God cannot be deceived. We only deceive ourselves when we think we will not reap what we sow. When we sow to please our sinful nature, our actions will obviously follow suit. However, if we sow to please the Spirit, the fruit will likewise follow suit. We cannot sow one thing and expect to reap something different. Again, if that is our expectation we are only deceiving ourselves.
My Advice – We have been crucified with Christ. What does that mean? It means that we are dead to our sinful nature. So why feed something that is already dead?
