God’s sovereignty and power is manifested in natural creation. God created man and all the heavens and earth according to his own will and pleasure and did not need man’s consent or approval to make him a living soul. In like manner, men are born again by the sovereign power of God, not by a cooperative effort or condition that man meets that will give him spiritual life. After the spiritual creation occurs in the new birth, there are actions in our life that should be manifested to exhibit the spiritual work of creation that God has done in our heart.
