The term "new birth" has become quite common in recent years. What does itmean?The new birth is a Biblical imperative found in the words of the Lord Jesus ChristHimself:
"Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again [new birth]"

As a young woman she began a serious search for the truth, and that bymeans of studying theological books.After several years of this futile attempt she was invited to attend a weekly Bibleclass. It was in her study of the Book, the very Word of God, that Cornelia not onlylearned how to become Christian, but she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her Savior and was born again.
 
"Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden,and I will give you rest. Learn of me... and ye shall find rest unto your souls" (Matthew 11:28,29).
My experience was at the opposite end of the spectrum. Raised apart from thechurch or religious education, I attempted to be completely self-sufficient andindependent of God.
