Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
Are you Born Again? What? Many people call themselves “Christians” but Jesus said unless you are “Born Again” you will not see the Kingdom of God, so what does “Born Again” mean?
but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” Genesis 2:17
First, we must understand that we are sinners, meaning we “rebelled against God”, Adam and Eve decided to disobey God and listen to Satan, which allowed sin and death to enter the world. The curse of sin and death was inherited down to us all
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
We are all Sinners, and the penalty for our Sin is death. You may say “Well I’m a Good Person” , have your ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you ever used Gods name in vein? Yes these are all sins and we are guilty of sin. We have broken the Ten Commandments (Gods Law)
And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18
Jesus himself said that NOBODY is Good except God alone, this is why we need a Savior! Thankfully God has sent us a Savior!
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
BUT There is good news (Gospel) because of Gods love and mercy, he became a man (Jesus Christ) and took the penalty for our sins at the cross. Through Jesus Christ you can be redeemed for your sins and inherit eternal life. So what do you have to do?
Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
Repent meaning “Turn away from your sin” Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and you become “Born Again” meaning filled with the Holy Spirit.
for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” Romans 10:13
So who can receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior? Everyone! You also can be saved through Jesus Christ
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16
Even though we are sinners Christ died for us so we can inherit eternal life, this is true love. If your not sure where to start with your relationship with God, just say this prayer below
Heavenly Father, I am a sinner, please forgive me for my sins, I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, give me a new heart and spirit in Jesus Name Amen!
