#5 - Turning New Birth Into New Life

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
James 1:18-21

#5 in the series "James - Soundness Of Soul"

New birth, while crucial, isn't really the center of James thinking in today's verses. Rather, it is the launching point into something else very important. The Word that gave you new birth is the Word that gives you ongoing life. The Word that births life is the same Word that sustains life. This is so important. I'm just as dependant on the daily reception of God's Word now  as I was for the gospel of truth to penetrate my heart to bring new birth. We can no more continue to walk with Jesus without receiving His Word regularly than we could be saved apart from the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Commitment to the truth of the Word ongoingly isn't legalism. It's life. Thats what James is saying. Devotion - your devotion - and intake of the Word of God today is as necessary to your walk with Christ as it was for your conversion.
