“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).

There is no better analogy than a birth for what happens when we enter into a relationship with Christ at conversion.  Conversion marks the start of a new life that never before existed.  Also, just as we did not birth ourselves physically, neither can we birth ourselves spiritually–it is a work of God.  Finally, both birth and the new birth of conversion brings us into a family.  It is a celebration of life.
