This is one of the most powerful truths revealed to us in the gospels about the new creation. I urge you to take some time today and meditate on it. To be born again is to be born of God. It means to be born of the Spirit and the Word of God. It means to have the life, nature and character of God, to be born into His class of being.
God made us and He had a plan for us, and in that plan He determined to give us eternal life. So we’re more than just creatures living in the earth; we’re those in whom divinity dwells. God gave us eternal life to lift us up to His class of being: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature : old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5 : 17).
If you’re born again, it means you’re in Christ, and if you’re in Christ, you’re a new creation-a new kind of man, existing in God’s class. No wonder He calls us joint heirs (Romans 8 : 17), and partakers of the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4). So He remains your God and your heavenly Father; He is greater than you are, but then you can relate with Him at the same level like a child would relate with his father. If you have a child, he can relate to you like a human being, not like your dog or cat which belong in a different class.
Since you were born in the image and likeness of God, His divine life has supplanted (completely replaced) your human life and brought you into God’s realm of life. The life in you now is Zoë-the God-life! It’s not susceptible to susceptible to sickness, disease, failure or death and could never be!
You’ve been lifted to God’s class. No wonder Jesus asked the Jews the pointblank question in John 10:34: “Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?” The life in you is the life of God, therefore you’re not ordinary. You’ve been born into the supernatural life. God’s desire is for you to be conscious of this truth and then live supernaturally every day, manifesting His glory and demonstrating His power to your world.
