Be Born Again.
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
In this month’s devotional we are going to be learning about ‘Life in the Spirit.’ The Christian life is not a religious life, it is a relationship. A man or woman becomes a Christian the day he or she receives the life of God into his or her spirit.
Religion is the outward observance of rules and regulations. In other words, you can act religious and not be a Christian.
Jesus was speaking to a religious man in our opening scripture and He said to him, “… Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Being born again is a miracle because when a man or woman becomes born again the life of God goes into their spirit. This is because when you are not born again, you are dead spiritually according to the scriptures.
Ephesians 4:17-18 says, “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God …”
The unbeliever does not have the life of God because he is separated from the life of God.
I encourage you to be reconciled to God today if you are not born again or a backslider by praying the prayer of salvation below:
Prayer Of Salvation.
O God, I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe He is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day for my justification. With my mouth I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord. I take Him as my personal Saviour. By my faith in the blood of Jesus, I believe, I receive, the washing away of all my sins. By my faith in the Name of Jesus, I believe, I receive, eternal life into my spirit. Jesus, come into my heart, make me a new person. I repent of my sins and I turn away from them. I open my heart to the Holy Spirit, to flood my heart with the love of my Father God. I believe I am born again. I am a child of God. Amen.
