Regeneration: Power Of The Gospel
2 Cor. 5:11-21
Paul asserted that all men must appear at the judgment seat of Christ. He enjoined Christians to consecrate their lives to Christ. The apostle mentioned two things that are necessary in order to live for Christ, these are regeneration and reconciliation. Divine grace enables us to have a thorough change of heart. Regeneration power makes us to act from a new perspective inherited from Christ Jesus. You must evaluate your life if it’s reflecting Christlike life, because if you are truly born-again and regenerated, you must truly be a new creature.
Point of Emphasis: Regeneration comes only by the power of the gospel.
Prayer Point: O Lord, it is Your will that I should not know Christ after the flesh, but to live for Him in truth and spirit. Help me to do this on daily basis.
