Beloved

We love because
We are love
And we are loved
That is what love does

I John 4:7
“Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God.”

I John 4:16
“God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.”

I John 4:19
“We love him, because he first loved us.”

Born Again

Art: The Holy Spirit by Waiting for the Word

Mary gave birth

To Jesus Christ

But Christ was not

Born of God

Until his baptism

By water and spirit

 

ST. Mark 1:10-11

“And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him.  And there came a voice from heaving, saying, Thou art my beloved Son…”

St. John 3:5

“Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
