Discovering the Headwaters of Humility
The farther back we explore, the more grace we find. — “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.” — John 3:8 (NIV) Jesus uses the metaphor of wind to illustrate the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, showing that just as we do not cause the wind to blow, we do nothing to cause new birth. We can only be born as passive recipients of someone else’s doing.
