What does "generated" mean? Reference to the new birth (John 3:3-5)

I. Quickened and Vivified by the Spirit (Ephesians 2:1; Colossians 2:13)

Our journey as born-again believers begins with a spiritual quickening. Ephesians 2:1 and Colossians 2:13 remind us that we were once spiritually dead in our sins, but through Christ's sacrifice, we have been made alive by the Holy Spirit. This transformation awakens our hearts to the truth of God's love and grace.

II. God's Masterpiece: His Workmanship (Ephesians 2:10)

As born-again believers, we are not only saved by grace but also designed by God for a purpose. Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are God's masterpiece, created anew in Christ Jesus to do good works. Our lives become a canvas on which God paints His transformative love and grace.

III. Baptism: The Working of God for Remission of Sins (Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:38)

Baptism is a significant step in the born-again experience. Colossians 2:12 and Acts 2:38 emphasize that through baptism, we are buried with Christ in His death and raised to new life. Baptism signifies our obedience to Christ's command and our acceptance of His forgiveness.

IV. Resurrected to Walk in Newness of Life (Romans 6:3-5)

Being born again involves a resurrection to a new way of life. Romans 6:3-5 highlights our identification with Christ's death and resurrection, resulting in a life characterized by righteousness and holiness. This transformation enables us to break free from the bondage of sin.

V. Entered into Christ Through Baptism (Galatians 3:26-27)

Through faith and baptism, we enter into a new identity in Christ. Galatians 3:26-27 explains that we are all children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. This new identity replaces our old self, and we become part of the body of Christ.

VI. A New Creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)

The transformation of being born again results in a complete change of identity. 2 Corinthians 5:17 declares that we are new creations in Christ. The old has passed away, and the new has come—a life filled with God's love, grace, and purpose.

VII. Generated by the Word of God (1 Peter 1:23)

The transformative process of being born again is initiated by the Word of God. 1 Peter 1:23 emphasizes that we are born again through the living and enduring Word of God. This Word implants within us the seed of divine transformation.

VIII. Positive Change Colossians 3:5-17

The change: Kill the old man and his works (v. 5-9)

“Mortifying” (KJV) is “Killing to death” (NKJV)

The “members” (sinful activities) are part of the very being

  • “I walked some time” (v. 7)
  • “lived in them” (v. 7)

These things being put to death are similar to other references (Rom 6:6, 11, 14; Gal 2:20; 5:24)

The terminology used indicates a suddenness of the end. Put on the new man and his good works (vv. 10-17)

Something is needed to fill the void.

  • A new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17)
  • Born again (John 3:3-5; 1 Peter 1:23)
  • Like new babies (1 Peter 2:2)

Characterized by new levels of engagement and appreciation

  • Love (v. 14)
  • Grateful (v. 15)
  • Concern for others (vs. 13, 16)
  • Disposition (v. 17)

To accept salvation - whether by faith or physical rebirth - is becoming a born-again Christian. After accepting Jesus as your savior, you will follow his commandments and strive to live a holy life according to his example.

The command that comes after accepting Jesus as your savior is to surrender your life to him trusting in his sacrifice for your sins. This involves believing that Jesus is God incarnate on Earth and that he died for you while you were still a sinner. It also involves confessing your sins and asking God's redemption through Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross. After recognizing his need for salvation, Jesus commands his followers to preach the gospel and make disciples. Discipleship involves continuing to trust Christ as you apply what you learn spiritually to daily life.
