Thought for the Week.

Byline: Andrew Cook

A MAN was astonished to read of his death in the obituary column of his local newspaper. Friends sent messages of sympathy to his wife. Finally, he telephoned the newspaper to express his annoyance.

The editor apologised, and, in a flash of inspiration, said: "Do not worry, sir, I will put matters right by putting your name in the births column!"

The Lord Jesus likened total faith and trust in Him as though a person were being born again with a brand-new start and a new life. He said: "I tell you the truth - no-one can enter the Kingdom of God unless he is born of water and of the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised by my saying: 'You must be born again'."

The Lord of life gives new, vibrant life to all who come in humble, repentant faith.
