What’s born again?

1 Thessalonians 5:23
2 Corinthians 4:6-7 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you.
Where’s the Power?
Heed: be watchful; observant—1 Peter 5:8—not intoxicated; free form illusion
Hear: listen to; let in, let pass—2 Corinthians 10:3-5—Gate keeper; arrest a trespasser
Measure: determination for what is enough; acceptable.
Mark 6:1-3, 5-6

2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Word of God. They don’t understand the message about the glory and power of Christ.
Proverbs 23:7 As a man thinks in his heart, so is he—think—accept, allows to enter.
