HOW TO BE BORN AGAIN
Church attendance, baptism, conformation, speaking in tongues doesn’t save you. You’re only saved when you’re born again.
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the
To be born again is quite simple:
1. Recognize you’re a sinner, somebody who is unworthy, somebody who knows he/she has broken God’s Law, somebody who knows that he deserves to go to hell.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
2. Realize that Jesus Christ died for your sins. A description of God’s love toward us. It is love given to the undeserving, to the ungodly and to sinners. This emphasizes the fact that the reasons for God’s love are found in Him, not in us. God’s love is so great that in His love, He went to the ultimate measure to make us able to stand in the face of His holy righteousness, through Jesus; God gave His love for us even when we are guilty sinners.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
3. Repent of your sin, to be sorry from all sins and a change of mind by turning away from all sin that produces a change of heart. God commanded everyone to repent.
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
4. Receive Jesus Christ into your life. When you have repented sincerely from your sins and have asked Jesus into your heart as your Lord and Saviour, have faith, trust in Him alone, read the Holy Bible and obey what you read.
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17(KJV)
This is a promise for anyone! It doesn’t matter what class, what race, what nationality, what language, or what level of intelligence. Anyone can be a new creation in Jesus Christ. However, being a new creation doesn’t mean that we are perfect, it means that we are changed inwardly, and learn through God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit how we should live being born again in Christ.
