Explains Itself

  One Scripture helps explain another. Galatians 5: 6 and 6: 15 are identical in the first portion. Then one says "but faith which worketh by love." The other says, "but a new creature." Seems evident to me that to become a new creature is the result from a faith that works being motivated by love. It is not a dead faith but an obedient faith that enables one to be "born again" into Christ and become a new creature (John 3: 3-5; 2 Corinthians 5: 17).

  Some try to make being born again something mysterious and weird. It isn't that way. To be born again one must believe and obey for there's no other way.
