The Evidence of the New Birth

My Utmost His Highest

"You must be born again." (John 3:7)

This new life exhibits itself in our conscious repentance and through our unconscious holiness. . . “. . . unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God ” (John 3:3). Am I seeking only for the evidence of God’s kingdom, or am I actually recognizing His absolute sovereign control?
