Devotionals

All Things New – New Birth

Read John 3:1-8
Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life. So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-7 NLT)
The beginning of a new year is a perfect time to recall and reflect upon our new birth in Christ, to surrender to his spirit, and to engage in the things that set up growth in this new life.

Life in the Spirit – Protection – Reproducing 4

John 17:16-26 (NLT) [Jesus said] “They [the disciples] do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.
“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
“I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me. Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began!
“O righteous Father, the world doesn’t know you, but I do; and these disciples know you sent me. I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them.”
We have this amazing truth—Jesus is constantly interceding for us even now. His prayer is that we would be connected to God the Father, connected to one another, and living as His servants in the world. As we encourage people to live fully on mission with God, we need to remember that we’re not alone, but are protected and prayed for by Jesus.
