"When I was born again by the Spirit of God,
I know that Jesus Christ did not come only to teach-
He came to make me what He teaches I should be.
The redemption means that Jesus Christ can place within anyone
the same nature that ruled His own life,
and all the standards God gives us are bases on that nature."
