Lent 2 Sermon — “Born from Above”


Babies don’t know anything about how they were born; they have no choice in the matter. They cannot conceive themselves, for there is no one there until after conception. The mystery of our spiritual birth is every bit as profound, and we had no more choice or opportunity to become God’s children, than we did in becoming our parents children. We became children of our heavenly Father because Christ came down from heaven to give us new birth from above.

Second Sunday in Lent, 8 March 2020
