Big Words that end in SHUN! – Regenera-SHUN
Powerpoint Pictures: Pictures of different actors as the Doctor from Doctor Who
There are a number of big words that sum up what the Bible teaches about what God has done for us, and it turns out that these words end in SHUN!
Look at the following pictures of a well-known TV character. Who is it? It’s the Doctor from Doctor Who.
In total there have been 11 Doctor’s so far with a new one coming soon. But how can all these different people be the same person? How does the Doctor as one person become the Doctor as another person?
Well, it’s by a process called regeneration.
Regeneration is how the Doctor goes from being one person to being another person. After this process of regeneration it’s like the Doctor has been born again because he is a new person.
Here’s a more important question: How can we believe in Jesus?
Why do some people trust in Jesus while other people don’t? How did we go from being someone who the BIble says hated God to being someone who now loves Him?
Regenera-SHUN! God makes us into new people who can believe in Jesus.
In Acts 16:14 we are told about a lady called Lydia who was not a follower of Jesus. But one day she heard the apostle Paul preaching the good news about Jesus and we read, “The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message.”
God regenerated her. She was born again. She became a new person who could believe in Jesus. And if you are someone who believes in Jesus, it’s because you have been regenerated too. God has made you into a new person who can believe in Jesus. So thank God for doing this wonderful work in you.
And if you don’t yet believe in Jesus, why not ask God to open your heart so you to can believe in Jesus and be saved.
How can we believe in Jesus? Regenera-SHUN! God makes us into new people who can believe in Jesus.
