How to be Born Again

June 11, 2012

After dark one evening, a Jewish religious leader named Nicodemus, a Pharisee, came to speak with Jesus. "Teacher," he said, "we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are
proof enough that God is with you." Jesus replied, "I assure you, unless you are born again, you can never see the Kingdom of God."   "What do you mean?" exclaimed Nicodemus. "How can an old man go back into his mother's womb and be born again?" Jesus replied, "The truth is, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives new life from heaven.  So don't be surprised at my statement that you must be born again. Just as you can hear the wind but can't tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can't explain how people are born of the Spirit."  NLT John 3:1-8.

God plays no favorites! It makes no difference whom you are or where you’re from-if you want to surrender your heart and life to God and are ready to do as he says, the door is open – there is peace with God through Jesus Christ who is Lord of All.

The Bible tells us how to receive this gift of salvation: Romans chapter 10 verses 9-11 reads: “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame."

PLEASE PRAY THIS PRAYER:  I believe that Jesus is God and He is Lord. I believe that God did raise Him from the dead. I want Him to be my Lord. Jesus, please come into my heart, my life. Forgive me of my sin. Be my Lord and my savior. I give my life to you.
