Born Of God

The apostle John writes, “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” (John 1:12-13)  Those final three words—born of God—literally mean “out of God were birthed.”  Christians have been born of God, not simply BY God, and may now take part and involve themselves in Him.  We’re compatible!  We’ve been given a new nature with the genetic code of God Himself, who has birthed us all over again, birthed us of Himself.

More than likely, you’ll not always feel that you’re living up to your genetic connection, but the facts will never be altered.  What the Bible says is true of you IS true of you whether you feel like it or not.
