Born of the Spirit


Yesterday we all celebrated the Mother’s who gave us life, whom we were born of in the flesh. But what does it mean to be “born again”?

A Pharisee named Nicodemus had a difficult time understanding this concept when Jesus spoke of it in John 3:3.  Jesus said,

 “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

“How can this be?” was Nicodemus’ reply. Many today have the same opinion. They don’t understand that they need a spiritual rebirth in order to realize the life they were intended to live.  This is not accomplished by deeds or even a water baptism. 

“Birth gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to the Spirit.”

It is the work of the Holy Spirit to control your spiritual rebirth and He works in ways that we cannot predict or understand.  It is a gift from God through the Holy Spirit.
