The Holy Spirit gives us new life in Jesus. The Spirit is the one who does the work of making you a born again being by His supernatural work. Paul tells us that nothing we have done saves us, but it is the work of the Spirit that prods us into belief that Jesus paid the price for us. By receiving the Cross, through repentance and by the renewing of the Spirit, we are saved. It is God's gift to us.
1. Have you been born again?
2. How do you know?
Challenge: There is no rebirth without change. How have you changed since your acceptance of Christ? Are you still arrogant, sarcastic, and self-centered? God calls us, through His Spirit, to a different life. (See 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Hebrews 12:14.)
