Our Creator, Redeemer, and Regenerator

God created us for Himself but Satan stole us and corrupted us. But God is able! The Triune God brought us back to Himself as life and into His house, as seen in the three parables in Luke 15. Our return to God put us on the path to New Jerusalem.

First, God the Father is the Creator (Eph. 3:9). He created all things, including you and me. If He did not create us, we would not exist. So we must thank Him for being the creating God. Second, the Son as the Lamb is our Redeemer (John 1:29; Eph. 1:7). He shed His blood for our sins that we might be redeemed back to God….So we must praise Him, our redeeming Lamb! Finally, the Spirit, shown by the river of life, is our Regenerator (John 3:6). The Spirit regenerated us so that we are born of God….We should greatly appreciate such a three-one God for our threefold existence; He is our Creator, Redeemer, and Regenerator.*

New JerusalemGod created man. Then man became fallen and dead spiritually. But Christ redeemed us and the Spirit regenerated us. Our regeneration was a spiritual birth. Now we are growing in this life. This grow requires milk, then solid food, plus exercise (Heb. 5:14).

Hebrews 6:1 encourages us, “Let us be bought on to maturity.” Paul and his companions were laboring and praying “we may present every man full-grown in Christ.” May this also be our aspiration. Let us be brought on to maturity, to New Jerusalem.
