Word of the Lord
Read - 1 Peter 1:23-25, John 3:3-8
Jesus calls His followers to be born again by water and spirit. Peter calls this sort of rebirth imperishable (or incorruptible), as it isn’t going anywhere and is not susceptible to the ailments of age and decay that normal birth is! What’s the mechanism for this? The living and abiding word of God, which gives life. What else does the passage say about God’s word? What does it look like for us to actually treat the word like it’s “living”?
