A NEW LIFE
Can an adult human being be born again?
ON one occasion, Jesus of Nazareth was giving a teaching to an old Jewish minister. This man, who was very knowledgeable about Torah, was moved by the love and wisdom of Jesus Christ. So he asked the Master, Nicodemus told him: How can a man be born when he is already old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born? Therefore, today we can ask ourselves the same question, especially when we have to break with cultures and traditions that we have accumulated for so many years. The Word of God reminds us: Therefore, he who is united to Christ is a new person. Old things passed away; they became something new.
“OR DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT ALL OF US WHO HAVE BEEN BAPTISED INTO CHRIST JESUS HAVE BEEN BAPTISED INTO HIS DEATH?”
By accepting the Gospel of Christ into our lives we begin to live under the identity of Christ. And just as the previous verses say, everything that we used to be, has now been renewed. Now we enjoy the favor and grace of God. Everything we did has been canceled by God. Thanks to the baptism of Christ we have that new birth. Thanks to the love of the Father, who himself paid for us, everything that must be removed from us, in the baptism of Christ, we do.
“FOR WE ARE BURIED TOGETHER WITH HIM THROUGH BAPTISM, IN ORDER THAT AS CHRIST WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD THROUGH THE GLORY OF THE FATHER, SO WE ALSO MAY WALK IN NEW LIFE.”
How to understand all this divine process of redemption and new opportunities? I will give an example, two young people grow up together, but one of them takes the wrong path full of acts that do not lead to crime and was accused. The other young man followed the right path, studied law and became a judge. In a trial, the judge discovered that his friend was the accused. The Judge did justice, sentencing the defendant both in time and with financial compensation. At the end of the trial, the Judge paid all the money owed and during the time the sentence lasted, he accompanied his friend in the rehabilitation process until he was released from prison, being a worthy and useful person for society. Something similar is what God offers us. Let us not miss this precious opportunity. Let us accept the new life that Jesus Christ offers us.
God bless you.
