Relish God’s Supremacy—the New Birth

Do you enjoy God and his saving grace? Do you make much of him and his work in the new birth (regeneration)?


‘…the first effect of the power of God in the heart in REGENERATION, is to give the heart a Divine taste or sense; to cause it to have a relish of the loveliness and sweetness of the supreme excellency of the Divine nature; and indeed this is all the immediate effect of the Divine Power that there is, this is all the Spirit of God needs to do, in order to a production of [in order to produce] all good effects in the soul.’ -Jonathan Edwards, Treatise on Grace, p. 49


The new birth is something only God can bring about; no man ever brought about his own physical birth. And when the Lord breathes life into one of his elect, they delight in him.
