Have you ever heard the phrase, “you must be born again?” How can that happen? Is that even possible?
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
In the Bible, a well-known religious leader, Nicodemus, wondered the same thing. He thought that he had to somehow go back into his mother’s womb to be born again. But Jesus was speaking of being born again in the spirit, not in the flesh.
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. John 3:5-6
To be worthy of Heaven after you die you must be born again in the Spirit of God. Jesus paid the penalty for your sins, that you may go to Heaven. But you must turn away from your sin. You must be made a new creation through the power of the Holy Spirit and be made clean by the power of Jesus’ sacrificial blood. To be born again from a dead spirit into the living Spirit of the Lord God.
If you repent and turn from your sinful lifestyle and ask Jesus Christ to forgive you, He will. He will give you a new heart and a new spirit so that you may have eternal life, born again. You will live like you have never done before. Your destination will be heaven instead of hell. How great is that?
And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. Ezekiel 36:26-27
