Being Born Again

Download Today's Audio ☞

1 Peter 1:23 (KJV)
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

The term ‘Born Again’ has come to mean different things to different people. To some it refers to Christians who are very serious with their faith, to others it refers to those who speak in tongues and flow in the things of the spirit. However, the scriptures should clear up any confusion that arises.

A man is said to be born again when he hears and believes the gospel. The moment he believes and confesses Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, something happens. John 1:12&13 tells us that that person receives the right to become a child of God. This right is obtained through birth. It goes further to explain that this birth is not a natural kind of birth but is divine. A new life begins, a life submitted to God.

As a result of this miraculous birth, God becomes the Father and Master of the one born again. So, if you have believed in the Lord Jesus for salvation, believing in your heart and confessing Him with your mouth, you have been born again. Now you must live like your Father. You see, in John 8 vs 44, Jesus speaking to the Pharisees said, “You people are from your father the devil, and you want to do what your father desires…” (NET). Likewise, those whose father God is would also want to do what the Father desires. Which is why there is no dichotomy in Christ, there is part that is born-again while the other is not.

The difference between the ‘serious’ Christians and others is called Spiritual Growth. Therefore, as newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word that you might grow thereby (1 Peter 2:2). So seek to grow, study the word, pray and fellowship with fellow believers.

Go into today meditating on this admonition from the Book of Titus 3:8,
“This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men”.
Prayer: Father help me to live a life that pleases you in all things. Strengthen me with might by your Spirit. Amen.
