The Gospel in a Scallop Shell
Among the most important documents is a person's birth certificate. A birth certificate not only records when and where a person was born, but also the nation in which he or she was born. A birth certificate shows a person's citizenship. In John 3, Jesus says that in order to be a citizen of the kingdom of God, one must be born again. We might ask, "How can one be sure of citizenship in the kingdom of God? Is there a rebirth certificate?" No. God gives us something even better. Your Lord placed His name on you at your Baptism, where He made you a part of His family and a citizen of His kingdom as you were born again through water and the Word.
