Descriptions of Regeneration, Part 2

We consider further descriptions of regeneration that describe God’s sovereign power to quicken, not by any involvement of man. Regeneration is a translation. The thing being translated is clearly passive and moved upon by a wise and sovereign power to translate it from one state to another. Regeneration is also a drawing. We are sovereignly drawn to God, not by any involvement or participation of ourselves. Also, it is a quickening, which is a making alive, a regeneration. We are quickened by the sovereign work of the voice of Jesus Christ. Finally, the word is also written in our hearts in regeneration as well.
