Bring Eternal Life
Page 85

Holy Spirit

Cloud over OceanIn life, we sowed to the flesh by deliberately pampering to our natural worldly lusts. To sow to the Holy Spirit meant to seek after personal holiness, which would eventually bring eternal life here on earth and on into eternity. Saint Paul wrote in Galatians 6.7-8, "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."

Jesus Royal Blood

William Gurnall an English author and clergyman (1616-1679) wrote in "The Christian in Complete Armor", "Say not that thou art begotten of God and hast royal blood flowing through thy veins except thou canst prove thy pedigree by this heroic spirit - to dare to be holy in spite of men and devils." The language may have been archaic but the truth remained that the Holy Spirit would bring eternal life to those who lived a holy life.✞
