“That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’“ John 3:6-7
It is not enough to be born of the flesh — the result of the union of a man and woman. To be a part of God’s kingdom, one must be born again of God — of the gracious working of God’s Spirit through Baptism and the preaching of God’s saving Word.
Thank You, O Holy Spirit, for raising me up from spiritual death to life through the washing of water by the Word. Amen.
