FROM THE BOOK:
Now, when Jesus said we "must" be born again, he did not mean that this is something we must somehow accomplish by our own abilities. The new birth is the work of the Holy Spirit. What Jesus meant is that we "must" believe it, desire it, seek it and receive this spiritual reality. The new birth is something He desires for us; and something His Spirit accomplishes in us. But it is an absolute necessity – the fact is, the Christian life is quite impossible without being born again. This is the reason why we see this important concept of "Regeneration" discussed in John’s gospel and his epistle, as well as, the epistles of the apostles Paul, James and Peter. This doctrine of Regeneration, which simply means "generated again" or "born again", is a basic and Biblical doctrine of the Christian faith.
So, as contentious as it is, we must try to understand it – more importantly we must experience the reality of being spiritually born again.
