Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. [1 Peter 1:23]
Perhaps this is the biggest mystery to our “carnal” generation. To a generation that largely pays credence to the assumption that the natural order is all there is, it has found the reality of the new birth in Christ a constant stumbling block.
But for those of us in Him, we experienced the titillating power of divinity that day we got born again…that day we heard indeed the gospel of Grace and believed into the kingdom and Lordship of Jesus Christ…that day we awakened to the revelation of the empty cross and the empty tomb and the King seated in the heavens above on the throne of God! We remember very well!
I am born again! Born of God! Not of corruptible seed…but incorruptible…by the Word of God which lives and abides forever!
I am sourced from His Word!
I am resourced by His Living Word!
I shall live eternal because I am born of the eternal Word of God!
It was the Apostle James who was inspired of the Holy Spirit to write these words…He said:
“Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” James 1:18
The Inspired Writ calls the new creation… “a kind of firstfruits” …. “a new kind of species”. Science and Natural Philosophy is wrong about evolution. I say, let them pay attention to the new birth. That is how the higher species of man has been brought into being. Selah
Thank you Mighty Father for the miracle of the new birth!!
