One of the first Bible stories I remember was told to me by Kate Holloman. We called her Sister Kate and boy we loved this wonderful woman. With a flannel graph (this was long ago and far away) she told us how Jesus told Nicodemus you must be born again. That’s where it all begins for all passionate followers of Christ.

By trusting Him, God accepts and adopts us as His children! We will stand thankfully not trusting in ourselves, but in Christ!
We stand upon this truth!
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.
