We have TWO BIRTHDAYS! The first when we were CREATED by GOD to live on this earth. The SECOND, when we were BEGOTTEN to join GOD'S FAMILY by being BORN AGAIN! BORN AGAIN, where GOD adopts us into HIS FAMILY and WE receive a most exalted position with HIM, everlasting LIFE. At this time, we are the FIRST FRUITS. The FIRST FRUITS belong to GOD. "Of HIS own WILL HE begat us with the word of TRUTH, that we should be a kind of FIRST FRUITS of HIS creatures", (James1:18). Two Birthdays, both a humbling CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION. AMEN. Happy Birthdays!
