What Happens In The New Birth?

Text: John 1:9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

In order for someone to become a child of God, the new birth is an absolute necessity. Yet nowhere in Scripture are we told how to be born again. Why is that? What role does man play in this? What does God do when He regenerates a soul? These questions and more are addressed with stunning clarity in the text before us.
