John 1:12-13 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
These verses are to me a perfect description of what it means to be born again. For me, this hasn’t been a “one and done” process. I have lived my entire life as a believer. But there have certainly been times I have strayed away from God, giving Him little thought or attention. When I have come back to seeking God, I have felt the sense of a “rebirth” of my faith. My rebirth two years ago has been profound for me, and has changed me. I don’t intend to lose this relationship again.
Father God, you are forever forgiving. I am so thankful. You have put others in my life to lead me back to you, over and over. May my life and my heart and my actions reflect your love every day. Amen
