    Lost 1 on 1 John 3... Jesus took away ALL of your sin on the cross! If you believe that with all your heart and might, why do you think you are still a sinner? You said you repented of your past sin. You are a NEW creature! His FREE gift of Righteousness to you through faith. We are now of HIS Nature, not sin nature. Second, join the club on regrets. But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Philippians 3:13 The best is yet to come! Holy To The LORD!

    I'll be 77 this July, and this was one of my 'go to' scriptures for years in my early Born Again life. It is refreshing to see/read it again as a reminder that God is still "the same yesterday, today & forever"! Amen?! Amen!

    I'll be 69 in July :D

    I was born again on Yom Kippur 1985. I was doing a horoscope with a friend. She said, it seems to make sense but the Bible says it's WRONG! (Has a form of godliness but denies the power) Her face disappeared and I was seeing Revelation 1:14. It was a vision that changed me instantly. Sometimes I think He was burning scales off my eyes. My ears open so that silence was so loud! Someday I'll Tell my testimony.
