This week we have begun an overview of WHO the Holy Spirit IS and WHAT the Holy Spirit DOES. Yesterday we learned that
- The Holy Spirit Exalts Jesus.
- The Holy Spirit Convicts us.
THE HOLY SPIRIT REGENERATES US.
Another word for regeneration is rebirth, from which we get the phrase “born again.” To be born again, born anew or born from above are the Biblical expressions for a spiritual rebirth. This is distinguished from, our first birth, when we were born of the flesh and conceived in sin. The new birth is a holy and heavenly birth signified by a being made alive in a spiritual sense. Jesus tells us that,“Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit” John 3:5.Spiritual regeneration comes through the Supernatural rebirth through the Holy Spirit NOT just head knowledge but a transformation of the heart. The Holy Spirit gives life a new sense. a new start.
Next week we will begin to look at what the Holy Spirit did to transform Jesus earliest disciples into a powerful force we know as the church.
