need to repent, b) to change human nature through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which is c) bestowed
through faith in Jesus Christ as the only exclusive means of restoring a relationship with God.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the
Father but through Me. (John 14:6)
