Galatians 6: 7-8 ” Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

These verses are comparing eternal life to eternal punishment, the corrupt nature of sinful man, and the decision all of us have to make.  On one side, we have the world telling us that’s it’s all about what we want and desire…while on the other side, Galatians 5:24 tells us, “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature…”  But what does that mean and how do we go about it?  To crucify our sinful nature we must put to death our worldly affections and lusts…but how?  Through our daily  increasing love and faith in Jesus Christ, the things of the world will start to no longer hold their allure over us.
