12 Benefits of Being Born-Again

There is no other natural example I can think of, other than the butterfly, that displays the idea of what being “born-again” looks like. This animal begins as a caterpillar and goes through a process of transformation that we know as metamorphosis. It is still categorized as the same species or kind, but it has assumed a new and better image and identity that has a greater and different purpose for its life. Isn’t this just like being born-again? We are the same human being, but when God transforms us from the inside, we are a new creation in Christ, so although our body was physically born once, our spirit has been born-again. We are seen as being clothed in Christ’s righteousness, to God. Here are some beautiful promises and benefits from being born-again, I hope they help remind you of your importance to God.
