God So Loved The World

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:¬†The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.¬†Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?¬†Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and¬†of¬†the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.¬†That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.¬†Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.¬†The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?¬†Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?¬†Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.¬†If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you¬†of¬†heavenly things?¬†And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven,¬†even¬†the Son of man which is in heaven.¬†And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:”

“That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”

John 3:1-15

He Sees Me…He Knows My Name

“…Fear not: for I have redeemed you,

I have called you by your name;

you are mine.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;

and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you:

when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned;

neither shall the flame kindle upon you.

For I¬†am¬†the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel,¬†your ¬†Savior.”

Isaiah 43:1-3

Bless the Lord O My Soul

“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me,¬†bless¬†his holy name.

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

Who forgiveth all thine iniquities;Who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeems thy life from destruction;

   Who crowns thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

Who satisfies thy mouth with good¬†things; so that¬†thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

“Bless the Lord O my soul. “

Psalm 103:1-5, 22

If It Had Not Been…

“If¬†it had¬†not¬†been¬†the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;

If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Our help¬†is¬†in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.”

Psalm 124
