Every person that enters into this world is born once. But the Bible says that we must be born again if we wish to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Perhaps you are like Nicodemus in the Bible who said, 'How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?'
Jesus goes on to tell Nicodemus that when we're born of our mother's womb, that is our fleshly birth. But to enter into the kingdom of Heaven, we must have a spiritual birth. So how does that happen?
Realize That God Loves You
God's love for You is unlike any love you have ever experienced. While you are dead in your sins, He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for you so you can have the opportunity to live with Him forever.
John 3:16 - 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.'
Realize That You Are A Sinner
The reason God sent His Son to die for you is because you are a sinner in need of salvation. Ever since Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, we are born with a sin nature. No matter how much we try to do good, we can never measure up to God's standard of righteousness.
Romans 3:23 - 'For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;'
Realize That Sin Must Be Paid For
The Bible tells us that sin has a very heavy price and it must be paid for.
Romans 6:23 - 'For the wages of sin is death...'
The Good News!
But that verse does not end there. Jesus Christ paid the price for your sins!
Romans 6:23 - '...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.'
Believe and Trust Christ
In order to know Christ and receive the forgiveness that He offers for your sin, you have to turn to Him in faith. Stop trusting in yourself, your good works, your religion, etc., and place your full trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins and eternal life.
Romans 10:9 - 'That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.'
Romans 10:13 - 'For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'
