JOHN 3:3-6 NLT
Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are BORN AGAIN, you
cannot see the KINGDOM OF GOD.” “What do you mean?”

the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, buy the Holy Spirit
gives birth to spiritual life.”

bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world
does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.

STRONGHOLDS. We demolish arguments and every pretension that
sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive
every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
ROMANS 8:5-7 NKJV
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things
of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of
the Spirit. For to be CARNALLY MINDED is death, but to be
SPIRITUALLY MINDED is LIFE AND PEACE. Because the CARNAL
MIND is ENMITY against God; for it is not subject to the law of God,
nor indeed can be.

everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in
due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it
will eat its fruit.
