A Spiritual Implant

Description

This “implanting” of the life of Christ is a supernatural miracle.

I tell you the truth, unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God (John 3:5, NIV).

The only people who go to heaven are those who are born of water. But those who go to heaven must also be born of the Spirit. Just as the virgin Mary conceived the physical life of the Son of God, you and I conceive the spiritual life of the Son of God when we are “born again.” From that moment on, we are essentially two people on the inside. We have the mind, emotions and will that we were physically born with, but we now also have the mind, emotions and will of Christ within us. We have a spiritual “implant” of the life of Jesus Christ within our bodies. This is actually Jesus in the person of the Holy Spirit.

This “implanting” of the life of Christ is a supernatural miracle. It is something God does in response to our humble confession and sincere repentance of sin coupled with our deliberate, personal faith in His Son.
