You Ready to Accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Your Savior?
beings, by our very nature, we are born sinners. As such, we are
unable to enter the Kingdom of Heaven on our own. However, God
sent us His only son, Jesus Christ: "For God so loved the world,
that He give His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16. If
we do not accept Jesus Christ as our savior, we will never reach
God's Kingdom when we shed our earthly flesh. "Jesus saith unto
him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto
the Father, but by Me." John 14:6.
So, the question is: Are you
ready to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior? If you are
ready, you will need to be born again.
Do I Need to be Born Again?
The classic passage from the Bible
that discusses why you must be born again is John 3:1-21. In
that passage Jesus is speaking with Nicodemus, a prominent
Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews. Jesus said to Nicodemus
"...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again,
be, cannot see the kingdom of God.' Nicodemus saith unto him,
'How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second
time into his mother's womb, and be born?" John 3:3-1. "Jesus
answered, 'Verily, verily, I say unto thee., Except a man be
born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God, That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and
that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not. that I
said unto thee, Ye must be born again.'" John 3:5-7.
How Do I Become Born. Again?
In order to be born again two
things must happen. First, you must accept the prompting of the
Holy Spirit in your heart. "But as many as received him, to them
gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that
believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of' the
will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of' God." John 1
:1 2-1 3.
must repent (renounce) your sins. This can be done with the help
of the pastor or minister of your church----by repeating a
sinner's prayer. A sample prayer goes as follows: "God, I know
that I have sinned against You and am deserving of punishment.
But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that
through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I place my trust in
You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and
forgiveness—the gift of eternal life! Amen."
What Does it Mean to be Born Again.
"Born Again" literally means to be "Born from Above" - to be
spiritually renewed. Once we are born again we Must try to live
a Godly life. We try to live a Godly life. in order to receive
all that God has promised us in this life itnd the life to come.
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33. We
live a Godly lift by actively seeking godliness through our
actions, "But thou, 0 man of God, flee these things; and follow
after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience,
meeknes.." I Timothy 6:11. Additionally, we live a Godly life by
rejecting what is false. In I Timothy 1:4 Paul warns Timothy
that the masses should "neither give heed to fables and endless
genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly
edifying which is in faith: so do." Furthermore, in II Timothy
2:16 Paul warns Timothy to "...shun profane and vain babblings:
for they will increase unto more ungodliness."
What Do I Do Once I'm Born Again?
Once you arc born again, it is not
enough to rest on your laurels. You first need to find a Bible
Believing Church to attend. It is important that the Church be
Christ Centered and Spirit Filled in order to do God's work.
John 12:32 and John 16:8-11. Secondly, you need to read the
Bible every day. As sure as your body cannot live without food,
your spirit cannot live without reading the Bible. The Bible is
the sword God gave you to help you overcome temptation.
Ephesians 6:17. Therefore, you must sharpen your sword every
day, by increasing Bible knowledge, so that your sword is always
ready to use.
you must pray every day. Prayer is communicating with Cod. Just
like a marriage could not survive without communication, you
cannot build a relationship with God without communicating with
Him. However, there is a more important reason to pray: because
Jesus Christ instructed you to pray. 'Watch and pray, that ye
enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the
flesh is weak." Matthew 26:11. Further you should pray "...
always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and
watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for
all saints." Ephesians 6:18.
What Do I Do
If I Sin After Being Born Again?
When you are born again, " ye put on
the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and
true holiness." Ephesians 1:24. You are still human though and
you will sin again. It is part of your very nature. However, you
will be forgiven of your sins through God's grace. Paul spoke
about this issue in Romans. "But God commendeth His love toward
us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much
more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through Him." Romans 5:8-9. God's grace means we will
be forgiven for our sins
In order to
receive Gods grace., we must confess our sins. If we confess-our
sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us uur sins, and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 john 1:9.
