John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except one be born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God

Today is my first birthday. I say first birthday because it is the anniversary of my first birth. But I also have a second birth to celebrate. The physical life from my first birth will only last for a while. The spiritual life from my second birth will last all eternity. The first, physical birth was a result of love expressed between my dad and my mother. The second, spiritual birth, was a result of the love of my heavenly Father, God, Who sent His only Son, His Word, Jesus, to this earth through a physical birth to show us God’s love and to take my place for the punishment of my sin so I could have the second, spiritual birth and always be in the presence of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, Now there is nothing that can ever separate me from His presence. My prayer for each of you is that you have experienced this second birth and carry the assurance with you always as you share this fantastic birth with others.,
