will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground.
John 3:7-8 You should not be
surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.' The
wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell

Ro.2:15 since they show that
the requirements of the law are written on their

The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that
we are God's children.
I speak the truth in Christ--I am not lying, my
conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit-

but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely
given us. This is what we speak, not in words

2Co.1:12 Now this is our boast:
Our conscience testifies that we have conducted
ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, in the
holiness and sincerity that are from God. We
have done so not according to worldly wisdom but according to God's grace.
we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

I thank God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a clear conscience,

our bodies washed with pure water.
