Spirit-changed


There's a word heard by outward ear that speaks sharp truth.
There's a word heard by inward ear that calls with power--
    irresistible power.
The one Spirit speaks through both--
Outwardly, inwardly--
Until faith wakes
And faith takes
The gift that lifts
The dead to life.
Awake, alive, reborn--
Soul's fresh morn--
The same one Spirit's
Living, flowing, blowing
Always now from down inside
The word-washed heart.

The Spirit wakes us,
Remakes us,
Reshapes us
Until, like him,
We're holy,
All for the glory
Of God the Father
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit..." (John 3:5-6 ESV)

The Holy Spirit's part is so very critical to salvation, but many seem to ignore it today.
