you're born once into the world, by your mother, being born again simply means being born of God's spirit, its a second birth, a spiritual birth. born by the spirit of God. the spirit of God enters a man and he becomes a new person, old things are passed away, a sinful man becomes a new creature 'Creation' in Christ Jesus. the sinful nature is put away, and this new man then lives for righteousness, a better life , the old sinful nature dies..so to speak., bitterness is changed into kindness, hate is turned in to love. the chains of bondage is loosed 'broken' drug addiction, prostitution, a murderous heart , a life of destruction, is exchanged for the abundant life Christ spoke of. happiness joy peace and all good things the Christ gives to his blood bought children.

Who are the blood bought and paid for children ? anyone that will call on Jesus, and ask for forgiveness and ask Christ into their heart. 'their spirit'
