Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

September 8, 2010 (evidence of new birth)

evidence of new birth

“I might preach to you forever.
I might borrow the eloquence of Demosthenes or of Cicero,
but you will not come unto Christ.
I might beg of you on my knees, with tears in my eyes,
and show you the horrors of hell and the joys of heaven,
the sufficiency of Christ, and your own lost condition,
but you would none of you come unto Christ of yourselves
unless the Spirit that rested on Christ should draw you.
It is true of all men in their natural condition
that they will not come unto Christ.”
- C. H. Spurgeon

“Faith is the evidence of new birth,
not the cause of it.”
- John Piper
