3230 Holy Spirit, and regeneration

God’s Spirit works to bring the gift of new birth and renewal to those who have been called to faith.

The Holy Spirit’s work is promised

Eze 36:26-27 See also Eze 37:14

Jesus Christ proclaims the Holy Spirit’s work

Jn 3:5-8

The Holy Spirit’s work brings salvation

Tit 3:5-6 “washing” (apparently a reference to baptism) signifies regeneration. See also Eph 5:25-27

Regeneration is a creative work of God’s Spirit alone

It cannot be achieved by human means Jn 6:63 See also Jn 1:13; Jn 3:6

It cannot be achieved through the works of the law 2Co 3:6 See also Ro 2:29; Ro 7:6; Ro 8:2; Gal 3:2
