YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN
Min: God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing.
Min: The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes.
Min: So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Min: Do not marvel that I said to you, `You must be born again.'
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!
Min: Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be,
Min: But we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
Min: We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Min: My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
