“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, . . . having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,” – 1 Pet. 1:3, 23
God (because of His unmerited and lavish mercy) has caused us to be born again.
This miracle hinged upon Christ’s victorious resurrection.
We are regenerated through the word (which is eternal).
All the glory goes to the Father.
