Born of the Spirit

When someone is born of the Spirit, God gives that person many gifts. Some of the gifts God gives us through being born of the Spirit begin with the power to become children of God, to enter the Kingdom of God, to know God and Jesus Christ, to know and abide in God’s love, to be kept from the evil one, to be sanctified in the truth, to be one and perfected in unity, and to be with Jesus forever.

Spiritual Life vs. Spiritual Death

God’s gracious plan of Salvation—His remedy, if you will, for the problem of sin and death—is simply to offer Salvation to all who will believe in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

The Helper

The Bible says that the Holy Spirit has many attributes, one of which is as our Helper – parakletos – one called alongside to help.

Fully Convinced He Is Able to Save

The Word of God is powerful and able to fully work in us what He says He will do. It is the power of God that performs in us the new life, when we believe in Him as our Savior, making us a new creation in Christ Jesus. It is not our performance or works that saves us.

How Is One Born of the Spirit?

What does it mean to be “born of the Spirit”? Quite simply, it is synonymous with being “born again,” justified, “adopted” by the Heavenly Father as His child, and “betrothed” to Christ as His Bride. Why so many terms for the same thing?
