BORN OF GOD
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and everyone that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him”1 John 5:1
Our opening verse for today lets us understand the basis of being born of God is believing that Jesus is the Christ. The one that is born again who also has put on the nature of God, which is love, qualifies one as born of God. 1 John 4:7
Furthermore, the bible also says, even according to 1 John 3:9 that whoever is born of God, has taken the nature of God, does not commit sin because he has the seed of God in him, and this seed is an incorruptible seed. That incorruptible seed guarantees that the believer who’s been born again will be kept and preserved in Christ.
Being born of God is a great advantage for us as believers because we know that 1 John 5:4 tells us that whatsoever is born of God over cometh the world and this victory has been established by the finished work of Christ. The finished works of Christ is the basis of our redemption, it is therefore our confidence.
As children born of God, we know that our Father seats at the highest throne of power; what’s more is that we have also been made to seat with Christ. He has given us all authority.
In this we see God’s heart for the world that made him send his Son to the world, so that they may through Him receive the gift of sonship. As the ones who are already born of God, we must go all out to see others come into this experience as well. Glory to Jesus.
