You must be born again

EDITOR:

God says in order to got to Heaven, you must be born again. In (John 3:7) Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.” In the Bible God give us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. His plans is simple. You can be saved today. How?

First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23). Because you are a sinner, you are condemned to death. “For the wages (Payment) of sin is death” (Romans 6:23) This payment includes total eternal separation from God in Hell. “….it is appointed unto men once to die but after this the judgment” (Hebrews:9:27).

But God loved you and the world so much he gave his only begotten son, Jesus, to bear your sin and die in your place. “…He hath made him that we might be made the righteous of God in Him”(2 Corinthians 5:21).

Jesus had to shed his blood and die. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood” (Leviticus 17:11). “…without shedding of blood is no remission (Pardon)” (Hebrews 9:22).

“…God commendth his love toward us. in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Although we cannot understand how, God said my sins and your sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. He became our substitute for the payment of our sins which is a second death in hell is total separation from God.

My friend, “God….commandeth all men everywhere to repent (turn away from your sins) (Acts 17:30). This is repentance is a change of mind that agrees with what Jesus did for us on the cross. In Acts 16:30-31. the Philippine jailer asked Paul and Silas: “…’Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ And they said, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved…”

“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12)

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13) Whosoever include you. Shall be saved means not maybe, nor can, but shall be saved. Surely, you realize you are a sinner. Right now, wherever you are, repenting, lift your heat to God in prayer.

In Luke 18:13, the sinner prayed: “God be merciful to me a sinner.”

Just pray like this: “Oh, God, I know I am a sinner. I believe Jesus was my substitute when he died on the Cross. I believe his shed blood, death, burial, and resurrection were for me. I now receive him as my savior. I thank you for your forgiveness of my sins, the gift of eternal salvation and everlasting life, because of your merciful grace. Amen.”

Your soul is worth more than all the world. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36) Be sure you are saved. If you lose your soul. you miss Heaven and lose all. Please. Let God save you this very moment. God’s power will save you, keep you saved, and enable you to live a victorious Christian life.

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” 1 Corinthians 10:13). Do not trust your feelings. They change. Stand on God’s promises. They will never change.

You should be baptized in obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ as a public testimony of your salvation, and then without delay. “Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord….” (2 Timothy 1:8)

Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall confess (testify of) me before men, him I confess also before my father which is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32) Are you sure you will go to Heaven when you die? God says in order to got to Heaven, you must be born again. In (John 3:7) Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Ye must be born again.”

In the Bible God give us the plan of how to be born again which means to be saved. You can be saved today. How? First, my friend, you must realize you are a sinner. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”(Romans 3:23).
