Tony is a wretched sinner saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone to the glory of God
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
— 1 Peter 1:3
Take note: GOD is the One who *causes* us to be born again. We don’t cause ourselves to be born again by our own power. It is the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit that gives us a living hope!
