To be “born of water” refers to one’s natural fleshly birth. To be “born of Spirit” refers to the resurrection from the dead to eternal life as a glorified spirit being, and not to an emotional “conversion experience.” (see Appendix P)
The Greek present tense participle ο πιστ∈υων pisteuon means, “the one who” or “everyone who continually believes in Him.” Such belief is a continuous deep, life-long, inner conviction of faith accompanied by loving obedience to God the Father and Jesus Christ, rather than a mere mental or verbal acknowledgement of Jesus Christ.
