    Humpty Dumpty had an unsolvable problem. We have a problem, too, but ours has a solution: 
    Jesus Christ came to our wall;  
    Jesus Christ died for our fall;  
    So that regardless of death and in spite of sin, Through grace, He might put us together again. 
    Chuck Swindoll 


     He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit --Titus 3:5 (ESV)
