The Second Birth: Eternal Life
~John 3:16~ “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Do you think changing your outward appearance changes you within? Sorry to say, it doesn’t! Outward discipline doesn’t change what is within us. Our new habits don’t make us a new soul. Nonetheless, outward change is good, but not enough. If you want to see the kingdom, you must be born again. Jesus said it best, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation of God and God only. At our new birth, God remakes our souls and gives us exactly what we need. Our eyes are new, so we can see faith, a new mind so we can have the mind of Christ. He also gives us a new voice for praising His holy name. And most of all, a new heart, which has been cleansed by Christ.
All of us need to be born again, because the first birth was for earthly living; and the second birth enables us to have eternal life. In Jesus Name, Amen.
~John 14: 6~ “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
