Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit. John 3:5-8
The life of a follower of Jesus is dynamic and exciting. We are led and propelled by God’s Spirit as He gives us thoughts, emotions, and motivations that were never there before. Other people can barely tell where we are coming from and where He might take us next? Jesus said, this is only possible when I am born of water and Spirit. I think what He meant is that I can’t just be physically born, I must be spiritually ‘born again’! And when I am, I become the person He always wanted me to be, and I discover the purposes for which I was made in the first place.
When did I make my decision to follow Jesus? How evident is the working of God’s Spirit in my life?
God, I thank You for giving me life and this new life in the Spirit. The adventure has been amazing and I can’t wait to see what surprises are ahead. I can’t imagine any better life. I am so glad I am born again!
