I Peter 1:3 ” Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”

What does it mean to you to be born again?  Maybe it’s been a long time since you even thought about it, especially if you’ve been a Believer for years.  When you said “Yes” to Jesus, you underwent spiritual rebirth.  What was once corruptible became incorruptible,  and passed from death unto life.  When we are born again, all is made new…for by God’s great mercy and the sacrificial blood of Christ, we are saved from our sins.  To be born again means we are truly a new  person standing before God…righteous and blameless in His sight.

John 15:1 ” I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener.”

More than a dozen times in the New Testament Chapter of John,  Jesus makes the statement, “I am.”  Jesus asserts He is – the light of the world, the bread of life, the good shepherd, the resurrection and the life, the way, the truth and the life, and so forth.  But also in John 8:58 He states, “Before Abraham was born, I am.”   In other words, Jesus is telling us, “I’ve always been.”  This timelessness of existence then shows – all these declarations Jesus made to us in John were in place long before the beginning of time…And that each assertion is as enduring as He is.
