    Hi Enoch.

    A new life is initiated by a new birth and we find that when we accept Christ as our Lord and savior.

    The dawning of spring is a vivid reminder of Christian truths about new birth, new beginnings, and resurrection.

    Jesus said,

    "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God"

    ( John 3:3).

    Our life is fruitless without the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.

    When we come to faith in Jesus, the Spirit of God comes to live in us, sealing us as God's own adopted children, guaranteeing us a future inheritance ( Rom. 8:16; Gal. 4:4-7; Eph. 1:13-14; Titus 3:4-7).

    He also gives us the power to do the good works that pleases God and produce fruit.

    Have you been born again by placing your faith in Christ alone? Do you love God? Have His peace in your heart? Love His people? Hunger and thirst for righteousness? Desire to serve Him and share the life-changing news of the gospel with others? These are just a few signs that you may have been born twice! One physically, one spiritually.

    While we are thankful for the new, secure birth in Christ, we should also be thankful for the new beginnings.

    Even though we are children of God, we still strugglewithsin, and when we do, we do not need to get saved all over again, we are His children forever.

    However, because of our sins, our relationship isn't where it should be and we need to be reconciled to Him, having our sins forgiven so that our fellowship, "that oneness can be restored.

    Our relationship with Him is restored when, in prayer, we confess our sins to Him. 1 John 1:9.

    God bless.
