Dan’s Online Diary 

# 20.1.04 by Dan
Lately I've been reading the gospel according to John.
When Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born again, I just realised something (two things, actually).
  • You do not choose to be born - it happens regardless of your own will.
  • You cannot be born and then be 'unborn'. Once you are born, you are alive. There is no going back to the state you were in prior to birth.
These points may already be patently obvious to you readers, but I've only just discovered them for myself.
Interesting stuff.
This indicates that we are elected - our salvation is not of our own choice. And also, once we are saved (born again), we are always saved.

...to Mark Y for (finally) getting your driving licence! :)
