Description

"You must be born again." This declaration from Jesus is either deluded or devastating to the one who would be captain of his soul. Not many biblical realities are better designed by God to reveal our helplessness in sin. But not everyone today is jealous to esteem this miracle for the wonder that it is.

The term born again is very previous and very crucial in the Bible. And our main concern should be to know what God intends when the Bible uses this language, so that by his grace we may experience it and help others do the same. It is of enormous consequence that we know what being born again really means.

God is the great Doer in this miracle of the new birth. And he has not been silent about it. This means that he does not want us to be ignorant of what he does in the new birth. It means that knowing what he has revealed about the new birth is good for us. When Jesus said, "You must be born again," he was not sharing interesting and unimportant information. He was leading us to eternal life.
