Being Born Again.
There was a man named Nicodemus in the Bible. He was a spiritual leader and a great man, and one night while speaking to Jesus Christ, Nicodemus asked Him what is the requirement to go to heaven. Jesus told him, “You must be born again” (John 3:7). Remember, you must be born again, not born perfect.
It sounds so nonobvious that we should be BORN AGAIN before we can enter or see the Kingdom of heaven. However, when a genuine born again Christian look back at their life and the salvation they receive, they will tell you that being born again has been an amazing experience for them. Being born again is just one of the basic thing to enjoy, but what comes afterward is something more than that. It is the journey of faith and hope, which makes us who we are.
It is a great joy to be born again because it means that we are connected with God in the spirit that nobody has power over it, but yet you can see the effect of this on your life. Our journey to the kingdom of God starts with being born again and knowing Christ as our Lord as savior is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.
Now that you know the truth about what Jesus said that we must be born again to see or enter the kingdom of heaven. You need to ask yourself this question: have I been born again? Do I feel like my heart connected with God? If yes congratulation and thank you for reading! Please share this post with others. If no, then, it is effortless, talk to you local pastor regarding this topic. May the Lord bless you as take a step of faith to become a new creation. Amen.
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away. Behold, the new has come!”
Lord Jesus, thank you for your help in becoming a new creation. I am so grateful for all that you have done in my life. I want you to come into my heart and make me whole so that I can be filled with your love and joy.
