John is continuing a short series on the power of God. The last few weeks we have talked about our need for the power of God and how confession is a precursor to receiving his power. This week's message is the pinnacle of the series and focuses on the power of the Gospel to save sinners and to make us new. We rejoice with the Apostle Peter when he says, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."
