But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.John 1:12-13
What an amazing proclamation! He has made anyone who has come to know Him sons and daughters, children of God! The physical birth of a newborn baby is a beautiful experience of life. We prepare for the birth of a child for many months and then when it finally happens, we celebrate and throw a big party! We give gifts and offer wisdom and encouragement for the coming year. However, what about when someone is reborn? When someone experiences the new life that Christ gives, do we throw a celebration and offer wisdom. The second birth, or the spiritual birth, is even more special than the first. Just like the first birth, the physical birth brings a child into a family, so the second birth. When someone accepts the saving grace of Christ, they become a part of a new family, the family of God.
Have you experienced the new birth and become a part of the family of God? If not, do not waste another day before becoming part of God’s family. If you are part of His family, then spread the good news so others will also want to join His family!
A Prayer to Remember
