Begotten Us Again

It is observed at the Fourteenth of Job that man is born of woman. However, the Savior told Nicodemus at the Third of John that a man must be born again. The Lord then explained to the confused Nicodemus that, while the first birth is of the flesh, the second birth is of water and the Spirit. Baptized in water in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, one is promised the gift of the Holy Spirit, according to the apostle Peter at the Second of Acts. Unless a man undergoes this second birth by obedience to the Gospel of Christ, he cannot enter into nor see the Kingdom of God. As one who experienced that second birth and faithfully preached it to his audiences, the apostle wrote at First Peter One that God had begotten us again.
