A Divine Inheritance


victory in Christ

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” – 1 Corinthians 5:17  (ESV)

Through our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit, we have been born again. What does that really mean? The term “born again” is a phrase often repeated and often taken for granted.

Simply put, being “born again”  it to be made anew through Christ.  Redemption by being “born again” through faith in Christ,  reconciles the believer to God, completely and eternally. It is a gift of pure mercy and grace.
