Like fine wine, you grow better with years doesn’t apply in the spiritual realm. Although I wish this old saying was true, Romans 7:7-25 tells a different story. Instead of improving in taste, the smell of sin causes believers to pray for an infusion of grace.
Birthdays are nice to celebrate, yet God’s main concern focuses on John 3:3-5, have you been reborn spiritually? The sarcastic often respond like Nicodemus, “how can someone already born, fit back into their mother’s womb?” While clever, God is not amused. Jesus’ perspective of an infusion of grace can be found in John 3:16-17, illustrating a loving and patient God.
The reason why rebirth is essential according to the apostle Paul, Romans 5:1-2, faith is the key to gain access into the Lord’s infusion of grace. Though undeserving, Jesus died, offering his life as an atoning sacrifice while we were still sinners, Romans 5:8. In view of this goods news, tidings of great joy, lean on Jesus, Romans 10:9-10 to experience this infusion of grace.
