Our salvation is based on the covenant whose redeeming work is finished on the sacrifice that has been offered once for all time by the eternal Spirit Himself. Hebrews 9:23-24 reminds us that the Sacrifice of Christ was offered “through the eternal Spirit” It is in John 3:1-10 that Jesus introduces the concept of the importance of being Born Again. He does so to a extremely religious Jew named, Nicodemus. This is a powerful account of the message of the gospel, that reminds us that New Birth is essential to establish a relationship with God. Just as we have no control over our initial conception and birth, we do not control the implementation of the New Birth. That is Jesus’ point. The Pharasees were an especially conservative group who were more focused on outer behavior, than inner change. Jesus’ point was that we need to be changed both on the outside (our actions) and our insides (our thinking). The truth of the matter is that in the New Birth, while we do not change physically, our change comes from the heart, for we need to have a new heart, that makes us a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). Evaluate you heart before the Lord, and see if you have truly been born again!
