“All Things Become New!”

“To make us meet to be blissful partakers of such heavenly company, this ‘marred clay’, I mean, these depraved natures of ours, must necessarily undergo an universal moral change. Our understandings must be enlightened; our wills, reason and consciences, must be renewed; our affections must be drawn toward and fixed upon things above. And because flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven, this corruptible must put on incorruptionthis mortal must put on immortality. And thus old things must literally pass away and behold all things, even the body as well as the faculties of the soul, must become new.”

“Christ hath said it and Christ will stand, ‘Unless a man,’ learned or unlearned, high or low, though he be a master of Israel as Nicodemus was, unless he ‘be born again, he cannot see, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.’”  (John 3:5)
