May 18th – 1 Peter 1:23

1 Peter 1:23

Evangelist Henry Drummond said, “The Spiritual Life is the gift of the living Spirit. The spiritual man is no mere development of the natural man. He is a new creation born from above.” Our physically birth into this world doesn’t mean we are also born spiritually. Paul himself told us that we all start out dead in sin. (Eph. 2:1). It is God alone who makes us alive when we come to Him through faith in Christ. (Eph. 2:5–9) The minute we receive Jesus as our Savior, we become part of God’s family. And as His adopted children, we have been given some pretty amazing privileges and heirs to His promises. Even more wonderful, we receive a life altering transformation through the work of the Holy Spirit and God’s Word. A new eternal nature which celebrates our new life in Christ, and the incredible hope and security we have as believers.
