the spirit, water, and blood are one. that is the renewal of lives, to be born again. when one asks God into his life, to take over, to ask for forgiveness, to worship him that is done in spirit. we have the ability to talk to God in spirit which god is. secondly is when one has devoted himself to loving god and following him,then as an outwardly gesture, it is water that renews our lives as baptism. just as jesus had done, as it pleases the Lord. jesus is also that living water, that you drink and never be thirsty again, once you repent the fountains of forgiveness are abundant. in blood, is the new covenant with our lord. it is in his blood that was shed for our sins, it is his blood that drink of in communion, it is thru his blood that there is salvation. all three the spirit, water, and the blood are all one in the showing of Gods love, grace, and relationship with him. he can renew us, and all three of the spirit, blood, and water have a part in that. similarly, whatever the father does, the holy spirit and the son do also.
