BORN AGAIN


BORN AGAIN

John 3:3 (NKJV) Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

We have heard the words “born again” used in so many ways in our world.  People sing it as love songs, and use it in so many different ways.  Yet the Bible is very clear that if you are not born again before you die, you will not go to Heaven.

To be born again is a free gift given to each and every person that has received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  It is passing from death to life.  You see, when Adam and Eve committed high treason, they were born again from life to death.  Can you imagine that?  One moment they had the very life of God within them, and then after they disobeyed God, death, or separation from God, came inside of them.  That is why when God called out to them, Adam said that he hid himself because he was afraid.

Just before they ate of the forbidden fruit, they were in right standing with the Father and all of creation.  Now when death came within them, not only were they separated from their source of life, but all of creation changed.  Now the rose had thorns on it, and the lion did not lay with the lamb.

But Jesus!  When Jesus died on the cross all of creation closed its eyes.  The sky darkened, and the earth shook as our King and Lord died on Calvary’s hill.  But on the third day, when He rose from the dead, all of creation sounded, “He is risen!  Glory to God!  He is risen indeed!”

So today, if you have accepted the free gift of salvation, and have asked Jesus to come into your heart, then you are born again!  Your spirit is now united to the Father’s, and He sees you just as pure and holy as He sees Jesus!  Remember, it is not about what we have done.  It is all about what Jesus has done, and all we have to do is believe it and receive it.

CONFESSION: Today, I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ.  I have accepted the free gift that God my Father has offered to the world, and all of my sins are washed by Jesus’ blood.
