从上帝生的 [Born of God]





Book: John (New Testament)
Author: Apostle John

John 1:13 :who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Today’s Meditation: A Christian’s life is spiritual and has no relationship with human flesh and natural life. We cannot reborn using our wisdom or skills to reach the heaven. We can only reborn in God. “not of blood” explains that salvation cannot be inherited. We cannot claim ourselves as Christian at the moment we are born though our parents are Christians. “nor of the will of the flesh” explains that salvation does not depend on our will of flesh. We need to make decisions to be saved, but we cannot be saved without the will of repentance. “nor of the will of man” tells that we are not saved through the help of others. It is the help from other people for us to hear the gospel, but we are still not saved without the affection of Spirit.
