Being born again is similar to our physical birth. When you were born into the physical world, you learned all about how to live in the physical world. Born again, refers to a spiritual new birth. You experience a new beginning but this time you are being born into the family of God and you have to learn how to live in the kingdom of God. Just as it is in the natural, you start out as an infant and progressively grow to adulthood. It is a whole new growth and development process. it is not an instantaneous transformation. You must learn many things and endure many trials and tribulations which is a natural part of growth.
