Vital signs- Friday, July 16th, 2021


“…having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.”

(1 Peter 1:23)

 


The Bible teaches that those who are members of the Church are not members simply because their parents were members of the Church. They must be born again. They must have a new birth. Jesus said to Nicodemus, who was already religious, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). If you only are born once, you will die twice. The first death is the physical death; the second death is eternal death in the lake of fire.

But if you’re born twice, you can only die once. Your physical body may die, but your spirit, forever united with the Lord, will be with Him in glory. The Lord said, “do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28). Born once, you die twice. Born twice, you only die once.


• Have you been born again through Jesus? If not, how is He speaking to you about that today?

• If so, how does your life look different compared to before you met Jesus?


Take time today to share with another person your experience of being born again.
