Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, 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.’ …”
John 3:5-7 NKJV

We enter this world flesh – mortal human beings from mortal human beings. Life in the flesh is marked for death because of sin. Faith in Jesus blesses us with new birth – spiritual birth – a new life in a new Kingdom. It’s where we find real life. No longer subject to death, we enter eternal life by the power of the Holy Spirit.

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
Romans 8:11 ESV

New life in Christ. A new Spirit by which to live. Each and every day, seek to live by the Holy Spirit — the way of real life.
