In this birth the new life is planted by "incorruptible" seed, even by the word of God. See also Ac 10:36 Jas 1:18. The gospel preached and lodged in the heart, "the power of God to salvation" (Ro 1:16), is the power that moves the soul to a new life. Which liveth and abideth forever. God's word is living and eternal. It has life in it and hence communicates life. See Heb 4:12.
