You don’t have to like the law of gravity, but it is in your best interest to respect it. You don’t have to prefer it, but it’s not going to change for you. It is a law of nature. It is a divine law, not a negotiated law.

You may say, “Gravity, you are not going to tell me what to do. It’s my life and I’m going to do what I want to do. You are not my boss, Gravity! You can’t control me! I’m a free person and I’m going to do what I want to do!”

“In fact, Gravity, just to let you know how I feel about you; I’m going to rebel. I’m going to get up on the top of this church building and I am going to oppose you. I’m going to jump. What do you think about that?”

You already know that the law of gravity won’t stop you from jumping off a building. The law of gravity won’t hold you back. You can jump and, for just one fleeting moment, it might even appear like you have outwitted and outsmarted the law of gravity. It might seem like you have had the last word, but a few seconds later it will become abundantly clear that you have adjusted to gravity; gravity did not adjust to you. Sin has consequences.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7-8 NIV)

In Christ,
