The story of when Nicodemus asked Jesus is well known: “How can I, being an adult, be born again?” And is that the Bible has always insisted on what is the new birth, new creature, be born again, etc. Remember something very important, we are heirs of the Adamic sin, but, Christ claimed us at a very high price, which is to die for our sins and exactly that is what makes us born again.
The Bible says:
Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
What is the word of truth? The gospel is the word of truth, Jesus is the word of truth, and is that there is no other truth that can be done to free men, so Jesus said: “And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:32). What truth does Christ refer to? He refers to Himself, there is no other name under heaven where we can be saved except in the name of Jesus. Our Lord has been given a name that is above all names for every knee to bow and confess that He is the Lord.
Men create institutions to help people to leave the vices, but we must understand something and it is the spiritual, there are bonds in men that only God can set free and this is achieved when Christ comes into our lives and is there where He makes new creatures, born again by His Holy Word.
We are more than privileged that His Holy Word has made us born again and that is why we enjoy the greatest delight: “Belonging to the body of Christ”.
