Being Born of the Flesh and Being Born of the Spirit


People who are born of the flesh only
(1) They have a physical existence in the kingdom of the world and belong to the world.
(2) They are spiritually “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1).
(3) They follow the course of this world under the influence of Satan, who works in the children of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2).
(4) They live according the lusts of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind (Ephesians 2:3).
(5) Their mind is focused on the things of the flesh and of the world. Their mind is at odds with God, is not subject to the word of God, neither indeed can be. Therefore, they cannot please God. (Romans 5:5-8).

People who are born of the Spirit
(1)
They are in the physical world but have a spiritual existence in the Kingdom of God and belong to the Kingdom of God.
(2) They can now walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
(3) They now focus on the things of the Spirit and the Kingdom of God. They submit to the word of God and how they might please Him (Romans 8:5-8).
(4) Their citizenship is in heaven, from which they also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:19-20).
