HOW TO BE BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT

VIEW: TRAILER – NO ROOM IN THE INN

UNLESS ONE IS BORN AGAIN

Jesus said, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).  We need a spiritual rebirth because that is where the Spirit lives. The flesh offers nothing of value.

When we are born again, God restores His original image in us. His Spirit breathes the breath of life in us, and we again become Spirit, soul, and body. God created man with a spirit that has a soul (a mind, will, and emotions) that exists within us.

When we are physically born, we enter life as fallen creatures, inheriting Adam's sinful nature.  God tells us to become as little children and to be born again according to His Spirit and truth. Children are teachable; they do not have preconceived ideas or prejudice; they accept things at face value.

God is triune, (three in one) He is God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit. He is three individuals and one at the same time.  Water is a fitting example; it is liquid, vapor, and solid ice, all being separate in form, but still one; depending on its function.

Similarly, the typical pattern of prayer and worship involves the unique roles of each member of the Trinity

·         We address our prayers to the Father (the Source

·         We pray in the name of Jesus Christ (the Mediator

·         We pray with the power of the Holy Spirit (the Enabler).

The fall reversed Adams' triune nature, becoming the body, soul, and Spirit.  His appetite and allegiance changed, seeking body appetites first, soulish things second, and spiritual things last; if at all. When you are within the proper trinity (triune nature), you are Spirit, soul, and body.  Your soul (the conscience), guides your Spirit, and your body follows peacefully.

In your fallen state, (body, soul, and Spirit), the conscience, self-will, and inner man exist trapped between the body and the Spirit.  They battle one another, the body dictating to the conscience, the Spirit crying out. The Spirit can only be confused, making for incomprehensible sins and actions. God breathes spiritual life into our fallen nature, reversing our triune environment to its original state, and we become alive to God in Spirit and Truth. If we are to believe the Whole-Truth about Jesus’ work, we must believe in His death, burial, resurrection, and ascension.
