Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that that which is born of the Spirit is spirit – John 3:5 In order for us to communicate with the Father effectively, we must have the Spirit of God living within our physical bodies. God communicates with our spirit, not with our flesh. In order for our prayers to be more effective, we need the Holy Spirit, and according to the Word of God we cannot enter into the kingdom of God without being born of the Spirit. The gifts and the fruit of the Spirit comes by the Spirit of God indwelling our physical bodies. God enables us to live according to His Word, when His Spirit is within us.
