"God is testing the motives and principles of men and women. Strong faith and much prayer will bring heavenly angels to our side. By patient continuance in well-doing, we become channels of light. Those who are willing to be emptied of self will be fitted for the Lord's work. There is work for all who will deny self and lift the cross. Through the help of the Holy Spirit they will gain the victories which God desires them to gain. Wisdom and strength will reward energy and perseverance. These are God's gifts to the diligent, humble worker." AURC March 1, 1901
John 3:2 He came to Jesus at night and said, Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no-one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him. 3 In reply Jesus declared, I tell you the truth, no-one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.
4 How can a man be born when he is old? Nicodemus asked. Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!
5 Jesus answered, I tell you the truth, no-one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.>>(If we read the all chapter even better)NIV
