Want to

You tell me: “Yes, I want to!”  Good.  But do you “want to” as  miser wants his gold, as a mother wants her child, as a worlding wants honors, or as a poor sensualist wants his pleasure?

No?  Then you don’t “want to”! — St. Josemaria Escriva, The Way

    , and we read of the Spirit of God fluttering (meaning of the Hebrew) over the face of the deep . See also John 3 where Jesus talks about being born again’ or born of the Spirit’. We all bmceoe a new creation in Christ Jesus when we repent, are baptized and commit to following Him meaning our old lives of sin are put away and we can now walk in newness of life’ with Jesus to His kingdom. See also 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 for more on this idea. Hope this helps somewhat.
