Born AgainYears ago when I was at a party, I heard a few people talking about born again Christians. I said "I'm a born again Christian." Someone said "No you're not". I said "Yes I am". They said "No you're not, they're fanatics."
Well I am a born again Christian and have been since I've been a little girl and I'm not a fanatic. It got me thinking that a lot of people don't know exactly what it means to be BORN AGAIN.
You are BORN AGAIN once you are saved.
This was the simplest way that Jesus could explain the basic change that must happen before we can posses the joy of being a child of God and receive the gift of eternal life. We are born one way and once we accept Jesus as our Savior, Jesus lives in our hearts and we are BORN all over again.
And how are we saved?
It couldn't be simpler because our salvation is a GIFT from God and not something that you can buy or earn.
And how do we receive this gift?
Admit you are a sinner and tell God you're sorry, Believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and arose from the dead and ask him to save your soul.
What could be easier!!?
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.
If thou shalt confess with thy mouth Jesus as Lord, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, you shalt be saved.
You too can feel the joy that I feel knowing Jesus and know for certain that when you die you will go to heaven. This is the only way to get there.
A prayer to ask God for his Gift of Salvation is:
Father, thank You for the free gift of eternal life. I know I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. I am sorry for my past sins, and I ask You to forgive me.
Jesus, I believe You died on the cross for my sins and arose from the dead. I now open the door of my heart and invite You to come into my life. I realize there is nothing I can do to earn my salvation, and I place my compete trust in You alone for eternal life. I choose to follow You as my Lord. Please make me the person You want me to be.
