(Gal 6:8) “For he that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
In this life everything we say, do or even think is sown (or deposited) in one of two places. It’s either sown to the Spirit or to the flesh; there is never any in between. Thus, when we operate in bitterness, hatred, gossip, unforgiveness…etc, we are actually sowing into the flesh, and building up an account that’s credited to hell.
Conversely, if we operate in the things of God such as love, joy, peace, gentleness…etc, we are sowing to the Spirit and building up an account for heaven. The fact is, if we (as Christians) looked at everything we do as being credited to heaven or hell we might examine our lives more extensively. We may even attempt to guard our tongue, thoughts and heart a little better. As Christians we should all want our lives to be credited to the Spirit of God so that life everlasting will be ours.
However, we have to make a concentrated effort in order to make this happen. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I don’t want to spend Sunday after Sunday in Church services and when my time on earth is over I die and go to hell. Therefore, in order to have the things which we say, do and think sown to the Spirit we must do as King David said “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer (Psalm 19:14).”
