Route 1 - You must be born again.

It took me until I was almost 40 before I became born again but I have never regretted it. The hardest bit was looking at who I had become and how I treated other people, especially those around me. Everything about me was selfish and self-centered, and I was proud of it. Didn't I have a good job? wasn't I living and working in France, with all the trappings of good job, house with a pool, 4x4 et cetera, et cetera, (We've just been to see the King and I, if you haven't seen it then the et cetera, et cetera, won't mean quite the same to you.)

But then God got a hold of me through my amazing and gracious wife, that was over 20 years ago and we are now living a better life with less money but more reality than ever before, where by the power of the Holy Spirit we look to live by the fruits of the Spirit expressing them to each other and those around us, what are the fuits of the Spirit?

Galatians 5:22-23 New King James Version 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Do we always get it right? Well I don't. But I keep trying, not in my own strength but in the strength promised to us by Jesus when He promised to send us the Holy Spirit.

So were all our troubles over now that we had become Born Again Christians? You'll have to read on.

John 3:3 New King James Version 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
