If I wanted to grow some tomatoes what would I need? Soil, water, sunshine… tomato seeds! If I sow pumpkin seeds I will not get tomatoes.

I. SOW TO THE FLESH [v. 7-8]

1. Be Not Deceived [v. 7, James 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.]

2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

2. God is Not Mocked [v. 7]

3. Sow to the Flesh and You will Reap Corruption [v. 7b-8a]


1. Be Not Deceived [v. 7]

2. God is Not Mocked [v. 7]

3. Sow to the Spirit and You Will Reap Life Everlasting [v. 8b, John 4:36]

And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
2 Peter 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

III. Wait & Reap [v. 9-10]

1. Do Not Be Weary on Doing Right [v. 9, Luke 18:1]

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
2 Corinthians 4:1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 Corinthians 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
Ephesians 3:13 Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.
2 Thessalonians 3:13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

2. We Will Reap if we don’t Quit [v. 9]
