Why the World cannot Receive
1. "A christian is what he is not by ecclesiastical manipulation but the new birth. He is christian because of a spirit which dwells in him. Only that which is born of the Spirit is spirit."
Only spirit quickeneth spirit...in the absence of the Holy Spirit our Spirit cannot respond to God's overtures of grace...we cannot worship, pray, and live a spirit-filled life.."if any man have not the spirit of Christ, he is none of His." Rm 8:9
2. "When faith becomes obedience then it is true faith indeed."
