For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life”. John 3:16
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE BORN AGAIN
Jesus of Nazareth is the greatest and most important person who ever lived. The most unique and probably the most controversial statement is, He claimed to be the Son of God; not for the things he did or what he taught , but because he was born by virgin Mary being conceived by the Holy Spirit. Matt. 118-24; Luke 1:35, 28-38. Jesus was different from everyone else from the start –He was not born by natural means. He was born by the Spirit of God. He had the very nature of God in Him, hence he was able to live like God did, without sin, working miracles and loving others like He did. We know for instance that:
- A cat is born of a cat
- A dog is born to a dog
- A lion is born to a lion
- A son of God is born of God.
If we are to be like Jesus, become children of God, then we must be born by the same Spirit of God that Jesus was born of. We Must Be Born Again.
Jesus said ‘except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God……that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit.’’ John 3-8. To be born again is not about joining a church, getting baptized, or turning a new leaf, but rather a recreation or regeneration of the inward man (the spirit of the heart) With the Spirit of God you truly become the child of God just like Jesus was. John 1:14.
’How is this possible?’’ Nicodemus asked. John 3:9. God created the universe by His word; He sustained it by His word, and controls it by his word. By the same word He can transforms simple human beings like you into a supernatural child of God. The word of God is the seed of God. 1 Peter 1:23; Rom 1:16.
STEPS TO BECOME BORN AGAIN
Acknowledge that you need God. We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Not only have we sinned, we have a nature prone to enjoy sin. Rom 3:9-18.
Recognized and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe with your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Rom 10:9-10.
Ask Him into your life as Lord and savoir and believe in the name of Jesus. John 1:11-13. When you do this, the Spirit of God will come in and make a change in your life. No matter what your circumstances or what you have been involve with. The word says all your sins will be forgiven:
God will allow you the grace to start again by forgiving all your sins.
Your old nature prone to sin will be exchange for God’s nature that hates sin. Rom 6:5-11.
You will be guaranteed a place in heaven by the means of the Holy Spirit that is recreated in us, and our names that are written in the lamb’s book of life. Eph 1:13: Rev 20:11-13.
