Before someone can enter the kingdom of God they need a miracle. More than that, they need to BE a miracle - to be born again. Amazingly, this new birth is not under man's control. The right bloodline (family or national heritage), human effort or even human will are no factors whatsoever. God alone can do this and when He does, He does so Sovereignly and invisibly.
Jesus compared the new birth to the activity of wind. Wind seems to have a mind of its own and yet wherever the wind blows, evidence is left behind. What kind of evidence should each of us be looking for that might assure our hearts that we indeed have been born of God?
