The Spirit’s Work In The New Birth

Let us muse from John 3:8 today and the Gospel according to the new birth. Our text tells us that the Spirit is compared to the wind. In the work of the new birth  we are told the Spirit blows where it listeth which means as it wills. The text tells us that one who is born from above is borne by the will of the Spirit. The word Spirit is also compared with the word breath. In Ephesians 2:1 we are told that before we were saved we were dead (corpse like) in trespasses and in sins. There is only one thing that will cause a dead man to live and that is the spiritual breath of the Holy Ghost. This work is called regeneration which causes a man to believe once he is alive. Dead people will not believe, accept, or receive anything. The natural man receives not the things of God.
