Scripture Verse ‘1 Peter 1 Verse 23’

christmas

1 Peter 1 verse 23: “Since you have been born again—not of perishable seed but of imperishable — through the living and enduring word of God”.

From The Message Bible: “Your new life is not like your old life — Your old birth came from mortal sperm; your new birth comes from God’s Living Word”.

Again Christmas time is a time to reflect. Christ Jesus came down from heaven to be born as one of us, so that through dying as one of us, He could give us new birth.

To be Born Again, born of The Spirit, regeneration, second birth. We were born into sin when we were born the first time, Christ Jesus came to pay the price, so we could be reborn of The Spirit.

Born Again, Spiritual rebirth of someone who professes faith in Christ Jesus.

To be Born again, we are made one with Christ Jesus, by a living faith and a vital relationship with Him {Our Lord, Our Redeemer, and Our Friend}.

John 3 verse 3:

“I tell you the truth, unless a man {or woman} is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God”.

Galatians 4 verse 28 and 29: We need Spiritual Birth.

V28: “Now you, brothers, like Isaac are children of promise. V29 But just as then the child born according to the flesh persecuted the one born according to the spirit, so also now”.

Christmas Time is a great time to reflect, why did Christ Jesus came? It certainly was not because he wanted to be born as a baby, but to show us that He came, to give us a new start, by being Born Again. Born of the Spirit, into to right relationship with Him and The Father and The Holy Spirit.

Christmas is not about the baby Jesus, it is about why He came, take sometime to reflect.

God Bless.
