My Spiritual Birth

I will sing of faithful love and justice; I will sing of praise to You, Lord. I will pay attention to the way of integrity. When will You come to me? I will live with a heart of integrity in my house. I will not let anything worthless guide me. I hate the practice of transgression; it will not cling to me. A devious heart will be far from me; I will not be involved with evil. [Psalm 101:1-4]

Holy Spirit Christ told Nicodemus and all of us: “Truly I tell you, unless someone is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” [John 3:3] I am so thankful for being born again way back in August of 1982. I praise You always for giving me life. I praise You for walking beside me through good and fun times and through tragedy, tests, heartache, and evil times. I praise You for helping me to learn to live life fully in Your presence.

Holy Spirit let me live the rest of my life as a living sacrifice for You. Help me to guard my heart, tongue, and thoughts. Let me love You with all my heart, mind, will, soul, and spirit. Help me to pray continually to You so that You know who I am. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. [Romans 12:1; Matthew 22:37; Psalm 19:14]

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. (Galatians 1:3-5)
