To Be Born or To Be Born Again

Re:Verse reading–John 3:1-21 (day seven)

Evil deeds

Born again
Born of water
Born of spirit
Eternal life
Practices truth

Two paths have been clearly set forth in John 3.  One is wide, the other is narrow.  The first is about fulfilling the self, the second about obedience to your Creator. Paul has similar categories in Romans in which we either follow sin unto death or we are obedient unto righteousness. In the flesh we cannot please God (Rom 8:8), but God has adopted us into His family as heirs with Jesus Christ (Rom 8:15).  Through the crucifixion we are given the opportunity for new life, and the capability to be perfectly obedient before our Lord.  May we be a people who practice truth when everyone else is perfectly obedient to the imagination of their evil hearts.

But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God. John 3:21

One thought on “To Be Born or To Be Born Again”

  1. A great contrast between born and born again. Men’s way and God’s way are very distinct, a different path and destination. Men have a free will to choose their destination. I like to be born again!
