What It Means to Be Born Again
If you’ve ever thought about what it means to be born again, then you know that it’s a wonderful thing. It’s something that makes you feel free and gives you a sense of security.
Being born again is a spiritual experience that every true Christian undergoes at some point. It’s an event that begins when a person repents of their sins and places their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, then accepts His forgiveness.
It’s an event that changes a person’s life forever. It also gives them new desires and ambitions that are in line with the Word of God. It also helps them to become more patient and willing to help others as a way of life.
When you’re born again, your old self dies and a new one is born in its place. This means that all of your past habits, priorities and ways of thinking pass away.
This is what the Bible calls a “new birth.” It’s an extraordinary miracle that transforms a person from being dead in sin to alive in Christ (Romans 5:5-6). You are made new in your spirit, your mind and your soul.
The Bible says that unless you are born again, you cannot enter the kingdom of God. This is because you must have a new heart, a new desire and a new spiritual outlook on life that comes from trusting in the Lord Jesus.
If you’re not sure whether or not you are born again, it’s best to pray and ask the Lord to give you a new heart and spiritual outlook on life. Then you can go forward with confidence knowing that you are a child of God, a member of the family of faith, a partaker of eternal life and that you will have heaven as your home when you die.
Once you’re a child of God, the Bible says that you will grow in knowledge and understanding. You will live a fruitful life of obedience to God’s commandments and the Holy Spirit will work in your life, transforming you into the image of Christ.
You will develop a relationship with the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit through prayer, Bible reading, fellowship and other Christian activities. You will also learn about what it means to follow Jesus in the world and how to be a disciple of Christ.
Your life will be filled with the things of God, a growing love for Him and His people and a desire to serve them with your whole heart. You will also be a witness for Jesus and share the Gospel with your friends.
Being born again is a miracle that can only happen to those who are willing to put their lives in the hands of Jesus and follow Him with all of their hearts. It’s an experience that you don’t want to miss. Whenever you have the opportunity to share your testimony with someone, make sure to explain what it means to be born again and how it can change your life forever!
