Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God

As many as received him, to them he gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in his name.

John 3: 3; 1: 12.

Second birth
Our physical life, that we receive from our parents, our senses and intelligence enable us to discern our Creator God in nature: “the things that are made” (Romans 1:20), as it is called. They speak on His behalf (Psalm 19:1–3). Otherwise contact with him would be impossible, since we are sinners. All our efforts: praiseworthy intentions, good works, religious forms and practices, count for nothing to expiate our guilt and permit us to approach our holy God.

But Jesus Christ, the Son of God Himself, came to earth to speak to us and preach the good news, the gospel of the kingdom of God (Mark 1:15). He tells us that righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit reign in that kingdom (Romans 14:17). How then can we enter that kingdom, since our sinful state prohibits access to the divine domain.

The simple answer is: through the new birth, as Jesus states: “You must be born again” (John 3:7). When someone accepts Jesus as his Saviour, God gives him spiritual life. In so far as he believes, henceforth he shares the divine nature, possesses eternal life and is a child of God. Jesus Himself is then not ashamed to call us His brethren (Hebrews 2:11).

The question we must all ask ourselves is: “Have I truly been born again?”

Today‘s reading: 1 Samuel 11: 1 – 15 · Psalms 94: 1 – 11
