What is the new birth?

In the same way that we had to enter this world through physical birth, we must also experience a spiritual birth in order to enter the spiritual world.

It is clear to us that once we are born, there is no way to re-enter our mother's womb and repeat this process, because this happens only once.

It is also not normal for a baby to be born in stages, that is, one day it decides to show a hand, and the next day a foot, and in a month the head, to finally come out completely in a matter of months.

The natural process of birth leads us to understand that being born is something we experience only once and is something definitive, which leads us to grow and develop in different areas.

But just as there is only one physical birth, there is also only one spiritual birth, which comes from having a personal experience with Jesus.

The Lord manifests this in John 3:3, during the conversation he had with Nicodemus, a leader among the Pharisees. He taught him that the only way for anyone to connect with the Kingdom of God is through the new birth.

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.“

(John 3:3 NIV)

Although Nicodemus was a very intellectual and religious man, this did not help him at all, because he did not have the revelation of what the Master was trying to tell him.

The new birth in the spirit only occurs when we accept Christ in our hearts as the only Lord and Savior and when we surrender our whole heart to Him.

The new birth implies a detachment of our sin-affected nature, so that our spirit can bear fruit in the spiritual kingdom.

There are many people who attend church and think that by constantly attending ministerial activities they receive a new nature. But in reality, many of them have not given their entire lives to God. Perhaps certain areas are reserved and have not been submitted to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.
