HOW TO BE BORN AGAIN.

 

Where do you stand with the Lord today? Do you know Him personally? Did you know that you can know Him personally?
 
God wants us to turn to Him for everything that we need  or desire in life, but first we must take the step to become what the Bible says a  “Born Again” Christian. To do that we must realize that we are separated from God because we have sinned against Him. He is a holy and righteous God.
 
Everyone in the whole world  has sinned against God and that sinful nature in us keeps us from being able to fellowship with God. The only way to have a relationship with God is to be born over again and receive a new nature that God Himself provides .
 
How does He do that? By sending His Son Jesus to pay the price for our sin with His very own life. Jesus’ sacrifice took away our sin permanately and allowed us entrance into heaven and to have fellowship with God the Father right now while we live here on this earth. He does that through His Holy Spirit the third person of God.
 
God’s Word says that the wages of sin is death, or the punishment for sinning against a Holy God is death. But God did not want His very own creation to  be destroyed because of that sin so He provided a way out. That way of escape was for God Himself to become a man, Jesus Christ. Jesus then could take our place of punishment and let us go free! But it is not enough to admit  that we have sinned against a Holy God to be born again. God says  we must look to Jesus to save us from our sins.
 
Yes, we must first recognize and admit that indeed we have sinned against a Holy God but secondly,  the Bible says we must believe on  the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as  our own personal Lord and Savior to be rescued from our sin. What does that mean?  The Bible says in John 3:16 “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.” God loved you so much that He gave His only begotten Son for you. You are the reason God sent Jesus to the cross.
 
But in order to become born again it is not enough to just admit you have sinned against God or  just believe that Jesus died for your sins but you must receive or accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior. This is a choice. When you receive Jesus as your Lord you are giving Him permission to take charge or to take over your life.
 

If you do choose to make Jesus your Lord, you will become born again. You will become a part of God’s family. God will receive you as His very own child. He will be your Father and you will be His child.  You will go to heaven one day when you leave this earth but you will be able to commune with God right now. This is not just a thought to ponder in your head, accepting Jesus  is a decision of the heart.

Jesus came to this earth as a baby,  and when He grew up He went to the cross, died there, was raised from the dead, and lives today seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty in heaven.  He died on that cross for you! He took sin on Himself for you! When you accept Jesus’ death sacrifice and believe that He saved you from your sins you become what the Bible says is born again or  a new creature in Christ, a new creation; old things pass away and all things become new.( 2 Corinthians 5:17) 
 
As far as God is concerned, at that moment, you stand before Him as a brand-new person. You are reborn from sin and death  into a new life in God.
 

Thirdly, the Bible says that we are to confess with our mouths that Jesus is our Lord. The Bible gives some specific instructions that you are to follow in order to be a new creature in Christ.

Look at Romans 10:8-11:
 
…The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
 

So once we have prayed the salvation prayer we are to confess with our mouths out loud that Jesus is our Lord. We are to admit that we believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead and that Jesus is now our Lord and Savior. With that outward confession our salvation becomes reality. It pushes the start button of our new life in Christ Jesus!

PRAY THIS PRAYER TO BE BORN AGAIN.
