Galatians 6:7-8 

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

A quick first reading suggests that Paul is intimating salvation by works, but he is not. He is pointing out, once again, that the Spirit confirms the transformation. It is an affirmation of the statement that without transformation, there is no salvation. I, you, we must continuously strive to listen to and obey the guidance of the Holy Spirit. When I, you, we fail, I, you, we must repent and seek the Spirit's guidance in the next step of our transformation into the likeness of Christ.
