This week Pastor Ron continues his series in the Gospel of John.  We learn there are actually two sides of salvation namely the human side and the divine side.  How are these two understood?

c.  A few did receive Him V12-13                       john1_12-13

1- The Human side of Salvation V12

But as many as received Him,

to them He gave the right

to become children of God,

even to those who believe in His name,

2-  The Divine side of Salvation V13

True salvation always involves a spiritual birth…

How that spiritual birth never takes place…
