Baptism: Born Again. Born from Above. Born of the Spirit.

Added 5 October 2016 by Fr. Ed Benioff

I’m sure you celebrate your birthday — or at least you did before you stopped counting.

But do you celebrate your Baptism? You really should, because that’s the day when you were born for a better life. You were born of water and Spirit. You were born from above, born again, borne for heaven (see John 3:3-8).

In Baptism we are born again to become what Jesus is. He took up our human nature so that we might share his divine nature (2 Peter 1:4). He wants us to “be like him” (1 John 3:1).
