That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ John 3:
A true Christian life begins when you are born of the spirit, that is when you start to live and walk in the spirit because the Bible says, those who are being lead by the spirit, they are the sons/daughters of God. Flesh cannot understand the things of the spirit, which is why you need to be born again. There are many nominal Christians who oppose the term “Born Again” simply because they don`t understand the meaning and what it stands for.
Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation, but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. In the big family of God there are children whose life style does not reflect the nature of God though they call themselves the children of God. We call them “Born against “Christians.
They are born against because they don`t follow kingdom principles and they do not walk in love, they live in the old nature (The flesh). Nobody moves to a new building and still keeps his/her old address otherwise you will lose more letters and important information. Born Against Christians are against every progress in the kingdom of God as long they are not part of it and won`t benefit from it, they are consumed by the spirit of self instead of the spirit of Christ. Which are you, born again or born against?
I Declare: Today I declare that I am a citizen of the kingdom, I will do all within my power to promote both the advancement and the unity of the kingdom. I am an agent of kingdom advance!
Ignite Thought: We are born again to become and belong to the body of Christ, not to divide and destroy it!
