Maybe you have heard about being born again and you do not know what it means. The bible says-”Except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God” (John 3:3).
Being born-again means that you are saved from eternal judgment, delivered from your sins, set free from the penalty of your sins, and redeemed by Jesus to have new, fulfilling life. II Corinthians 5:17 declares “if any man be in Christ he is a new creature (or creation) old things are passed away and behold all things become new.”
Once we become born-again, God sees us as a new creation because all of our sins and transgressions that separated us from God are now covered by the precious blood of His Son, Jesus. Now you can stand before God and make our requests known unto Him through prayer. We have fellowship or communion with Him — a personal relationship with the God of the universe.
You are probably now wondering how you can have this wonderful experience, and it is so easy. The process for being born-again is found in Romans 10:9: “If thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God has raised Him from the dead thou shall be saved.”
First, believe in your heart that Jesus is the Son of God, that God raised Jesus from the dead, and that Jesus Christ died and shed His blood so you could be cleansed of your sin.
Then, confess that Jesus Christ is God, and ask Him to forgive you for your sins and take control (be Lord) of your life.
Make the decision to be born-again today!
To begin your new life with Christ, pray this prayer with me.
“Dear Lord Jesus, I recognize my need for You and I ask You to come into my heart and change my life. I know I am a sinner and ask you to forgive me for all my sins and make me clean. I invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and life to be my Savior and Lord. Thank You for Your forgiveness and salvation today. Amen.”
If you prayed that prayer from your heart, then you have just become born-again! Please let us know by clicking here.
