Mere Coincidence?

Reformation Theology: Physical Birth – Spiritual Birth.

What should you make of ‘coincidences‘?

As I was preparing a sermon for this Sunday, and having just completed a exegesis of John 1:12-13 ‘But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God,’ I noticed this post from John Samson in my blog feed. The time he posted was virtually precisely the time I started my exegesis. Not only that, but he had come to exactly the same conclusion as me – it was almost as if he’d ripped off the first few paragraphs of my sermon!

Is it mere coincidence that two people on opposite sides of the globe find the same thing in the same passage at the same time?

Or, maybe the Spirit is at work through the Word…
