|The Bible states that God loves us and wants a personal relationship with each of us.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:10
|Man is sinful and therefore separated from God. We can't experience a relationship with God because of this sin.
There is no one righteous, not even one, there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless: there is no one who does good, not even one. Rom 3:10-12
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Rom 3:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 6:23
|Jesus is God's solution to the sin which separates us from Him.
God demonstrated his love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:8
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Cor 15:3-4
|We must accept God's only solution for this separation sin has caused.
By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. Eph 2:8-9
[Christ speaking] "Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him". Rev 3:20
We must be willing to accept the leading of God, turning our lives over to Him. Being Born Again is a relationship with the Lord. It's living for Him, finding a good church, reading the Bible and praying each day.
You can be born again right now, all you have to is pray this simple prayer, believing what you are saying:
"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be. Thank you in Jesus name amen"
If you've prayed this prayer, then you are now a "Born Again" Christian in Jesus Christ. Now you must tell someone about this, and please either email me or write it in the Guest book so I too can rejoice.....
