    If we abide God and his words in our life we have everything we need. We need the Holy Spirit to connect with our Spirit . By the power of the Holy Spirit, his WORDS and his PEACE it passes all UNDERSTANDING. We have God's favour and mercy to enlighten other people's lives. Thank you Jesus for the blood . Teach me to humble myself before you Lord help me to be born again in spirit in my life AMN
