    Jesus himself is a word of God. He who believes him and his living water shall never die. John 1.1 In the beginning there was a word and the word was with God and the word was God amen. Only believe his words and lean not with your own understanding. Thank you Jesus for bringing us your that gives us life in abundance. Thanks for your blood. Let us be Born Again in Spirit and not in the flesh.
