Pause for Thought

This month is my birthday. I won’t tell you the date though – that’s irrelevant. We all have a birthday. And yet the Bible speaks of a strange thing: a second birthday or being born again. What’s that? Well, the day someone becomes a Christian by accepting Jesus as their Lord and Saviour counts so much to God that he considers it as our second birthday. In other words, by becoming a Christian, one has the chance to start a brand new life – literally! I’m twenty-three on the 19th of April – counting from my second birth...
