Today little is said about the new birth, but I think there is a question that every believer must ask himself: Am I really born again? Being born again is not as simple as going to the temple every day. When you are indeed a new creature, there is a distinctive mark that shows that you really are.
Let’s see what the apostle John tells us:
1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
1 John 5:1-3 (KJV)
