Puzzled by what Jesus had said about being born again, Professor Nicodemus asked the Christ, “Can I go the second time into my mother’s womb?”, Jesus answered, “that which is born of flesh is flesh, and that by the Spirit is spirit”. The day you received Jesus, you got a new spirit born by the Spirit of God. Like a new born, you were started on a milk diet in which teachings about redemption, forgiveness of sin, resurrecting from the dead and the hope of the rapture were introduced to you. This is the ABC of Christianity and it is where we all start.
If nobody welcomed you, allow me welcome you, you have a new Father called God the Father, a big brother called Jesus and your closest friend whose care and concern about you could be likened to that of a mother : the Holy Spirit. Welcome to the home where God is the Father. Did I mention we are safe under His roof ? You are welcome to this big family which traverses race, background, languages and many others.
SCRIPTURE READING: Heb 6: 1-8
John 1:11-13 11
He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Dear Heavenly father thank you for having me born in your household. Today, as your child I commit myself to you that you will make me what you want me to be, In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
