What is regeneration?

What is regeneration?

Regeneration is being born again, and is the work of the Holy Spirit, by which we experience a change of heart. It is perhaps better expressed as being "born anew from above" (John 3:7), being "awakened" (Ephesians 2:1). Christ coming into the heart (Galatians 4:19), "renewing of the mind" (Romans 12:2), the "purifying" (Titus 3:5). Man is not the author of his own regeneration. The change consists in the recovery of the moral image of God upon the heart, leading us to love Him supremely and serve Him as our highest end. It is wholly the work of the Holy Spirit. The change is in the heart and the will--in our moral and spiritual faculties. The natural faculties, being dominated by the will, while they may resist for a time, ultimately follow the change. The evidences of regeneration are conviction of sin, sorrow and repentance, faith, love and devotion to God. In regeneration we receive from God, whereas in conversion we turn to God.------ G.
