"YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN"

The words which form the title of this article, "Ye must be born again" (John 3:7), were spoken nearly two thousand years ago by Christ Jesus to a ruler of the Jews, named Nicodemus, who came to him by night and freely acknowledged that Jesus had come from God. The Master also told his guest that to be born again "of water and of the Spirit" (verse 5) is a condition precedent to one's entry into the kingdom of God.

Jesus' words to Nicodemus are as imperative today and for all time as they were when our Master spoke them centuries ago. Students of Christian Science understand, in a measure at least, that if they are to gain entrance into the heavenly kingdom, it must be through the new birth. In other words, they must give up all belief of life in matter and step by step accept and practice the marvelous truth that God is the only Life and Mind. This, they realize, is the way by which, through patient and unremitting prayer and right activity, they may exchange in the Science of being the mortal sense of life and intelligence for their true spiritual identity as the sons and daughters of God.
