The new operating system
It's us becoming the version we would have been had there not been a fall.
We have 2 directions for guidance. Internal and external.
We need to slow down sometimes to find out what I really want.  We need each other to grow spiritually.
Come to me and drink.  Rivers of living water will flow out of us.
"Follow your heart" is the advice we give when we don't know what to say. The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked.
John 3.1-
How does Nicodemus respond? How can this be? Jesus responded and it fades into John's text.
We speak. .. our testimony... earthly things. .. heavenly things
Son of man
Heavenly things. .. Jesus is more than a teacher. We... more than Jesus. .. you can became part of us, his people. .. and the trinity...
there is trust... Jesus spoke Aramaic and trusted his followers to record it accurately in Greek. To copy it over thousands of years. We are today in a chain of trust.
God works in we.  Through his people.
Did you hear him say blessed are the cheese makers?
He trusts us to be accurate.
1 Corinthians. .. you "were" sinners
Through rebirth we have and are becoming Jesus's followers.
Fruit of the spirit is LOVE. That gives joy peace patience. ...
That's who I am now. .. not angry not fearful. ..I am now a person of peace
Meet your true self perfected in Christ.  Why are so many Christians so un-Christlike? Not real or not connected to the voice of love.  We are made for relationship.
The Bible is intended to be a community experience.  Live it in community.
1 Corinthians 13 we discover who God is and who I am remade in the image of God.
