Bible Commentary for John 3:7

Wesley's Notes for John 3:7

3:7 Ye must be born again - To be born again, is to be inwardly changed from all sinfulness to all holiness. It is fitly so called, because as great a change then passes on the soul as passes on the body when it is born into the world.

People's Bible Notes for John 3:7

Joh 3:7 Ye must be born again. The necessity is implied in the word "kingdom" in Joh 3:5. No one born a citizen of England can become a citizen of the United States without complying with our naturalization laws. The kingdom of God has its naturalization laws, and there is no other way of entrance than to be born of water and of the Spirit. We may not understand all the mysteries of the new birth, any more than we do those of the natural birth, but we can understand what has to be done and what is necessary. Two things are needful: the spirit must be renewed; we must be baptized.

    Whatever opinions any of us may have about the "word " we must always bare in mind that the "word " is full pregnant with meaning and we should know that what you think it means could be right and what others think could be right too. The main thing is that we don 't dispute and be divided among ourselves as we seek guidance and understanding in the "word ". The "word " is like fertile rain from heaven that falls upon a fertile ground receptive mind . May Almighty God help each of us in understanding and doing His Word.

    This conversation was not to a nation, but to each individual, as Nicodemus replied should a man enter again into his mother's womb. Jesus stated if a man not a nation or a group but individual is not born of water and spirit he shall not see the kingdom of God.
