That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (Jn. 3:6 KJV)
Jesus made this fantastic statement as He explained the spiritual birth to an astonished Jewish Rabbi called Nicodemus. He says anyone that is born of the flesh, meaning, anyone that is born as every other human being is born carries the earthly nature that every other human being has. However, those who are born of the Spirit are described as “spirit.”
Notice the double usage of the words “flesh” and “spirit” here. The first( flesh or spirit) is related to but not the same as at the second. Did you notice that the first “spirit” in the verse above starts with an uppercase “S”, while the second starts with an “s”? This is because though related to each other, they are referring to two distinct entities.
The new birth is a work of the Holy Spirit. Two things take place as the new birth occurs in us. The first is a washing, cleansing or sanctification. This is symbolized by water. The second is a complete transformation of the person. This is the impartation of the divine nature, where the believer shifts from “flesh,” that is earthly like every other normal human being to “spirit,” that is carrying not only the nature of spirit but the divine nature itself.
You are born of the Spirit. His nature is immersed in you. You are not ordinary.
Can you tell the difference in the meaning of the word “spirit” as used in the two occurrences of the word in our verse above? Declare that “I am born of the Spirit, sanctified and completely transformed.”
