Born again!

Jesus answered and said... Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3)

To be born again and find the kingdom of God—what a joy to contemplate this holy privilege. Jesus' words not only contain the promise of a fresh start but also reveal the grand opportunity for actually knowing the harmony of divine reality.

Who among us hasn't longed at some point in his experience (perhaps even on many occasions) to be able to start something over, to correct some mistake from the past, to begin a new life or at least gain a new outlook on life? Seldom, however, can we actually retrace our steps and, through merely human means, rearrange satisfactorily the way events have come to pass. On the human scene our lives keep on moving, things change, people and places are not what they were. But of course Christ Jesus was not speaking of going back over the trail of human memories and so-called lost opportunities. The Master was pointing to something much more profound. Spiritual rebirth actually transforms the way we view reality and thereby transforms our very lives.
