New birth

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

Pastor Ed RoebertIf you have given your life to Christ, you have experienced a new birth.  When you became a new creation, you were born into a family. Jesus said:

John 3:3 Except a man BE BORN AGAIN he cannot see the Kingdom of God.

This statement almost seems to have shocked Nicodemus, and so he logically asked Jesus the following:

John 3:4 How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?

Jesus then made a clear statement which helps us understand our new birth, 

John 3:5 Except a man be born of WATER and of the SPIRIT he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

We will continue to discuss this topic in our next blog article.
