Two Births

For You From The Word

Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.”  (John 3:3, NIV)

For You To Think About

Some experience two: a physical birth and a spiritual birth.

The “two birth” principle is not simple. Even the learned like Nicodemus, a respected Jewish leader who sought Jesus’ counsel in the dark of the night, struggle to understand the fact that birth can be both physical and spiritual.

Your physical birth meant pain and suffering for your mother, yet has given you the opportunity to see, enjoy, and experience the world.

Your spiritual birth meant pain and suffering for Jesus. Yet once you are born again – literally “born from above,” accepting God’s free gift of salvation – then you can see, enjoy, and experience the Kingdom of God.

A woman who faces an unplanned pregnancy may understand the enormity of her responsibility in physical birth. Yet does she understand the significance of her own spiritual birth … and how it can impact her child?

She has the immense opportunity to guide a young life to not just one birth, but two: the first when she brings the child into the world and then later, in pointing the child to Christ.

You can provide practical support during her season of physical birth and spiritual support as she experiences a new birth to a living hope in Jesus.

For You To Pray

Heavenly Father,

I praise you that we can be born anew and experience God’s Kingdom here on earth. Move in the hearts of women who face an unplanned pregnancy. Inspire them to understand the significance of physical and spiritual birth for themselves and for their children. Show me how to provide support during both seasons of birth.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
