Some people paddle out into big waves, and then come back to shore standing up on the board they took out with them, riding a returning wave. They can spend all day doing it. They can spend their lives doing it.
Among their peers, people who master the techniques gain enormous respect. To those who know them they show what is possible, inspire them, and so enable them to strive and achieve what they didn’t think was possible for them.
So it is with all who are born of the Spirit.
