CHRISTIAN ? Do you want to be like the Early Christians
& Make a difference ? 1. A Ghost 2. God's Messenger 3. A dove in Jesus' Baptism 4. There's
only God The 3rd Person in the Blessed Trinity He changes us inside
with a new heart and a new spirit He promised a spirit that give men a "New heart and a new Spirit" 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. -Ezekiel 36:26-27 Have your heard of the story -Ezekiel 37:1-14 "Ezekiel, can these bones live ?"
