The Power of Yes

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us... Isaiah 9:6

I've often thought of being "born again" as something that happens TO us, but with Christmas fast on the heels of Advent, I've started thinking of it in a different way. What if the act of being born again is not confined to just one moment in history? And what if this act hinges upon our own simple "Yes" like Mary? When we say "Yes" to God, is that it? If so, why? Why is Christ not born again in us daily as "Emmanuel, God with us", Savior & King? What if it were not so much we who were born again, but Jesus in us? Imagine how that new Life would change ours! Could it be that "born againess" is actually more a process of daily conversion, symptomatic of Christ's birth in us rather than a one time event?

May He indeed be born again in us this season & daily lead us to salvation through His life, death & resurrection!
