There was an old saying from my religious background that says “we saved this many souls today”! That statement always made me think how elementary and sad to think one could make such a statement when we are incapable of bridling our own tongues and saving ourselves. All that Jesus the Christ told Nicodemus in that garden is proof of that. Salvation can not be taught or given by mere mortal. It is to be experienced, given from God alone. We are told that belief is a powerful force if it leads to the desire and determination to experience Christ! This is the meaning of Jesus when he urged people to believe in the name of the Only begotten Son of God. This is not merely a physical belief it is a knowing, once again it is ALL SPIRITUAL!
(John 3:19-21 CPDV)-“And this is the judgment: that the Light has come into the world, and men loved darkness more than light. For their works were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light and does not go toward the Light, so that his works may not be corrected. But whoever acts in truth goes toward the Light, so that his works may be manifested, because they have been accomplished in God.””
And So It Is! Amen!
