Leaping for Joy

As Mary arrives in the home of Elizabeth, her cousin, we have an amazing account of John the Baptist leaping in the womb of his mother for joy. John here displays the fruit of the Spirit (joy), affirming he is already born again in his mother’s womb. Therefore, John here gives the pattern for “every one that is born of the Spirit” (John 3:8), as he (like every other child of God) is born again by the immediate direct work of the Holy Spirit on the heart, without the use of any human means or conditions.
