Amidst raging violence in CAR, one Pastor from Bangui urged Christians to view the situation as Jesus would, and appealed to walk in His way by forgiving the militants. In a letter to his prayer supporters, the Pastor expressed deep regret over death of a rebel who tried to kill his team, saying that the militant’s soul was precious in God's sight. “I could not rejoice at the news, as his soul was too precious in God's sight,” he said.
Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 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 where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise him, all creatures here below;
Praise him above, you heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
