John chapter 1 contains a statement many believers use to teach a concept known as “decisional regeneration.” Specifically, the phrase that those who received Jesus as the Messiah were given power to become the sons of God. However, in the sentence following this statement, John insists that those who received Him did so because they were born, not of blood, their will, or any other human’s will, but of God. How do we reconcile these two statement? Does the reception of Christ cause the new birth, Or rather, does the new birth enable the reception of Christ? Join us for this message in our series on Sovereign Grace statements from John’s gospel for the answer to this question.
