I have asked Jesus the Christ into my life and I am “born again” by the Spirit of God as a child of God. God became my Father and I became His son. Where once I was spiritually dead (because of Adam), now am I spiritually alive, a new creature in Christ, a spiritual being made by God in me.
And as His deposit, His guarantee in me, He left the Holy Spirit to work with my new spiritual being to mature me. Doing this work in me at His pleasure and my willingness for all eternity stating when I asked Jesus into my life. He is extremely lovingly patience and I am incredibility self willed and thick headed. But HE IS (not me) changing me from glory to glory, His glory, into the likeness of His Son, Jesus.
