Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. – John 3:5
Water here means “the Word of God”. Jesus said in John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. And Hebrews 4:12 says For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
We need to read, study, memorize and meditate on the bible, which will lead us to Jesus, who will save us and baptize us in the Holy Spirit.
Now that truly is an apple of gold.
