Born of the Spirit

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

Jesus says in John 3:8 (NIV) 

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone BORN OF THE SPIRIT”

Pastor Ed RoebertJesus is saying two very important things here:
1. The work of the Holy Spirit in bringing a person to new birth is beyond human understanding. It is like the mysterious wind, yet just as real.
2. The Holy Spirit Himself performs this miracle.
How does this happen? John explains this in John 1:12-13 (NIV)

“Yet to ALL WHO RECEIVE HIM, to those who BELIEVE IN HIS NAME, he gave the right to become children of God children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husbands will, BUT BORN OF GOD.”

When you received Jesus into your heart and life as Saviour and Lord, You were:

  • Born of God
  • Born of the Spirit
  • Born into God’s Family
  • Born Again!

Yes, you have experienced a new birth!
