For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. (NIV) Anytime I hear about being born again, I am always drawn back to the story of Nicodemus . I can remember hearing this story for the first time when I was a child. The story of this pharisee who came secretly to see Jesus. The pharisee who wondered how a person could reenter his mother's womb to be born again. It was during this discourse with the pharisee that we get to hear one of the most profound statements of the gospel, John 3:16. Notice in this passage, that being born again makes you different. You are no longer perishable, you are imperishable. You will continue living, like the living Word. How should this knowledge affect your life?
