J N Darby – Being Born Again

being born again

It is a question of partaking in God’s holiness.  The world has rejected the Son of God.  Up to the cross it was proved that nothing could win man’s heart: he must be born again; and now, being born again, I am associated with Christ.  I am going to be in the same glory as He is in, and I am going on until I get there, purifying myself as He is pure.  Then I shall see Him as He is, and be like Him.  The world we are naturally of has rejected the Son of God, and the associations of the believer are with a glorified Christ, awaiting till He comes to take him home.  God has sanctified us to Himself by the blood of Christ.

(J N Darby, Collected Writings NS vol. 31 p177)
