“THE WIND BLOWS WHERE IT WISHES, AND YOU
HEAR THE SOUND OF IT, BUT CANNOT TELL
WHERE IT COMES FROM AND WHERE IT GOES.
SO IS EVERYONE WHO IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT.”
( JOHN 3:8 *NJKV )

Dear Friend,
What Jesus was referring to here is the Holy Spirit.
It often works in mysterious ways that we can’t predict,
or at times even understand.  Just like the wind, we
cannot control it either.

When you think about it, we could not control our
physical birth, nor could we control our Spiritual Birth!
For through our accepting Jesus as our Savoir we
become born again, this time of the Spirit!  That is a
promise from Jesus Christ!  “I REMEMBER THE WORD
OF THE LORD, AND HOW HE SAID, JOHN INDEED
BAPTIZED WITH WATER BUT YOU SHALL BE
BAPTIZED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT!”
( ACTS 11:16 )

Jesus also stated “THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE
FLESH IS FLESH, AND THAT WHICH IS BORN OF
THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT.”  ( JOHN 3:6 )  ” I SAY THEN:
WALK IN THE SPIRIT, AND YOU SHALL NOT FULFILL
THE LUSTS OF THE FLESH.”  ( GALATIANS 5:16 )

Now our Spiritual Birth is one of the greatest gifts
of them all!  For it comes with the fruit of the Spirit, and
“THE FRUIT
OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING,
KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS,
AND SELF CONTROL.”  ( GALATIANS 5:22 )

The more we love our Heavenly Father, the more of these
gifts He to gives us!

Now Friend have a wonderful day, and know that my
prayer for you is that you are walking in the Spirit, and
your life is now overflowing with these spiritual gifts!.

With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
