MADE TO LAST
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth forever. (1 Peter 1: 23, KJV.)
Are you born again? If you are, the realities of the above passage are yours! It is said in the passage, by what stuff you were born again – by the Word of God which lives and abides forever!
Beloved, what this means is simple – Your new life in CHRIST is eternal as God’s Word is!
Glory to God!
Here, see as the NEW LIVING TRANSLATION BIBLE puts it:
For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living Word of God.
Now that you’ve been informed, ‘your new life will last forever!’, are you still in doubt of the eternalness of your salvation? Please, you shouldn’t!
Finally, the Word of God is God, like we are schooled to know in John 1: 1. Therefore, being born of the Word, means, being born of God. John 1: 12 – 13 captures it succinctly:
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. THEY ARE REBORN – not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, BUT A BIRTH THAT COMES FROM GOD. (NLTB.)
We continue next time. But until then, beloved, have it at the fore of your mind, that, you’ve been born by an eternal God into an eternal life. You are forever assured! I call you blessed!
