Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” [John 3vs5-8]
Life circulates. Right now, blood is being pumped all through your body, keeping you alive, keeping you moving. And all around the world, jet streams are swirling in both air and sea. Life is movement. It never stops. When it does, it’s dead.
When Jesus talked about flesh (skin) being born as flesh, he was telling the story of our bodies, that are born, we will live for a season and then we’ll stop. To many who hold onto that human story, that’s it. One day, your body will stop.
But the spirit of a person isn’t made of flesh and therefore doesn’t stop. The spirit that each of us has is an extra gift given to us by God. To give life to our spirit isn’t something we can do ourselves. We must receive the gift of new and eternal life in Christ and allow Him to awaken our spirits by His Holy Spirit. That’s when real living begins!
