The awesomeness of the Bible is in its revelation of God, of Christ, and of who we are in this new Life that he’s given us. We are partakers of God’s divine nature, we are born again of His Spirit. (2nd Peter 1:4, John 3:8)
Someone said a hippo gives birth to a hippo, man gives birth to man, and God gives birth to god (I’m not sure that should be a little g–it’s like an insult to God. Although I know some Christians will take exception to a large G as well as to this whole line of thought.) And yet, the scriptures show us again and again that we indeed are sons and daughters of God and brothers and sisters to Christ. (Heb 2:11, Matt 28:10, 1st John 3:1)
God wanted a family–obviously–because that is what He planned when he created the worlds and sent Jesus to die for us. We could never be perfect on our own. We were only a creation, after all. But, by accepting Jesus’s sacrifice for our sins and believing in Him, we are born of His Spirit and His Word and are (as in the natural, so in the spirit), sons and daughters of God.
1st John 3:1 says, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God” (KJV). Think about it! “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” NIV
Have you thought what it means to be born again? Nicodemus in John 3 was astounded when Jesus told him he must be born again. Have you considered that as a Christian you are a partaker of God’s nature?
