We are born to make manifest the glory of God.  In a moment of grace, a is changed.

“A transformed life is the greatest of all miracles. Every time a person is “born again” by repentance of sin and in Christ, the miracle of regeneration is performed.” ’- Billy Graham  

Through salvation our past has been forgiven, our present is given meaning, and our future is secured.  The change of heart by which we become children of God is compared to the germination of a good seed sown on good ground. God draws illustrations from nature to help us better to understand the mysterious truths of life.  With all Man’s wit and ingenious, we still can not give life.  It is only through the life which God Himself has imparted, that either plant or animal can live. So it is only through life from God that life is created in the hearts of men.

How Are We Born Again?

“Regeneration denotes a new birth. This new birth has two elements; it includes being born of water and of the Spirit.”

When truth becomes an abiding principle in the life, the is “born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by of God, which liveth and reigns forever and ever.” This new birth is the result of receiving Christ the word of God which became life. Then by the Spirit, divine truths are impressed upon the heart, new conceptions are awakened, and the energies that lay dormant are aroused to cooperate with the creator of heaven and earth. Christ was the revealer of truth to the world. By Him the incorruptible seed—the Word of God—was sown in the hearts of men.

God’s Part in the New Birth—And Ours

When God speaks, His words are binding—they’ like an unbreakable contract. He always says exactly what He means, He never , and He never says, “Whoops, I’ve changed My mind.” The Word destroys the natural, earthly nature, and imparts a new life in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit comes to the soul as a Comforter. By the transforming agency of His grace, the image of God is reproduced in the disciple; he becomes a new creature. takes the place of hatred, and the person becomes like Jesus.  Henceforth you are not your own; you are bought with a price.

“Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Christ.” 1 Peter 1:18, 19.

Through this simple act of believing God, the Holy Spirit has created a new life in your heart. You are as a born into the family of God, and He loves you as He loves His Son Jesus Christ
