“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”  II Timothy 2:15
 

THE NEW BIRTH OR REGENERATION
 
Introduction:

Conversion and regeneration are inseparable; conversion is the act of turning from sin to Christ; regeneration is being made a new creature by the Holy Spirit’s power.
  II Cor 5:17 Titus 3:5

Regeneration or the new birth is the instrument that brings us into the family of God. The only way a person can become a Christian is to be born again. John 3: 1-6
 
There is no substitute for the new birth; to fail to be born again is to be lost. John 3:3
What must a man know to be born again?
 
That he, as all mankind, has sinned against God. Rom 3:10 Rom.3:23 Psalm 51;1-4  Psalm 41:4
 
That sin is any and all acts or thoughts of disobedience by man against the divine will and laws of God.   
   Matt. 15:7-20 James 4:17   James 1: 14-1  Isaiah 14:12-15
 
That while we sinned willfully in complete disregard for God and his laws, Jesus Christ died for us.     Romans 5:6-10 John 3:16-21
 
That sin brings death.     Romans 6:23 Romans 5:12
      Physical death is a separating of the body and soul.   Gen 25:8
      Spiritual death is a separation from the presence of God. Revelation 20:12-15
 
That the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
      Ephesian 2:1-10   John 10:24-30   John 11:25-26   I John 5:11-13
 
The gift of God is the substitution of his son for us, giving us His righteousness. Romans 10:1-3
 
III.     How then is a man born again, regenerated, saved or given eternal life from
                God?  Romans 10:8-13
        

IV. It is faith generated by the hearing of God’s word that saves a lost soul. 
            Romans 1:17 I Peter 1:23 James 1:18
 
V. Conclusion
Regeneration is a spiritual act of God that quickens our spirit and the new birth is the creation of a new creature.    Eph. 2:1 II Cor 5:17
