<i>"Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures."i</i> K.J.V
The same verse in the "New Living Translation" as is in the King James versions quotes this verse like this:
<i>"He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession."</i>
The believer in Christ should live in this world, showing others Salvation by God's grace with His Spirit living within, as a testimony of God's miraculous power.
God, by His Spirit meets us by HIs grace when acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ through the conviction of the Holy Spirit and prayer has taken place. After conversion, it is encouraged (James 1:18), to have God as first place and consideration in our lives, because believers In the Lord Jesus are His prized possession.
