Regeneration

  • Titus 3 v.5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

Regeneration refers to the work of the Holy Spirit in the salvation experience that produces new life in the believer. To express this concept, Jesus used the expression “born again” in His conversation with Nicodemus (John 3 v.3-7). Regeneration is the work of God, through the Holy Spirit, of placing in one who has faith a new nature, capable of doing God’s will. The Holy Spirit is the agent or divine workman of this regeneration. His instrument is the Bible, which is likened to a hammer that judges sin (Jer. 23 v.29), a mirror that reveals sin (James 1 v.23, a sword that defeats Satan (Heb 4 v.12), and a lamp that guides the believers (Psalms 119 v.105). People are instantaneously “born again”, the moment they trust Christ as Savior (1 Pet. 1 v.23). Christians should be careful to cooperate with God in growing as children of God after they are regenerated, or given new life.
