"Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God." (John 5:1b)

Every "born again" child of God has the threefold proof of the new birth, proof that he is a child
of God.  This threefold proof is: first, inward; second, outgoing proof; and third, outward proof.

"Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God."  My faith in Christ, that is He is
God.  "He that believeth in the son of God hath has witness in himself: he that believeth not
God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son"…"
These thing have I written unto you that believe on the name of the son of God: that ye may
know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe in the name of the son of God."  This is
inward proof of the new birth.

"Everyone that loveth is born of God."  We are to love our fellowman with the love of God.  
This we are not capable of doing in the flesh.  We must let God love man through us by the
power of the Holy Spirit.  This is outgoing proof of the new birth.

"Everyone that doeth righteousness is born of him."  If you are born of God, you will make a
practice of doing right at all times and at all cost.  "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a
new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new."  This is outward
proof of the new birth.

If you do not have the threefold proof of the new birth, now is the time to get on your knees
and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior by faith in His vicarious death, burial and
resurrection.

Be Blessed!
Pastor Thelma Gilbert
