Spiritual New Birth
Have you ever wondered what it takes to become a Christian? Some people believe that they are Christians because they have joined a church. Others think that following certain rules or standards is what’s required. But in reality, Christianity is not about membership, or adopting a code for living, it requires total transformation. Everything must become new.
Jesus explained the process to a religious leader who came to meet with him secretly one night. He told him, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” John 3:3, NLT
Spiritual new birth is the gateway to a new beginning — the start of your journey with God.
When you are born again, all things become new:
You are transferred out of Satan’s Domain of Darkness into God’s Kingdom of Light.
New Relationship with God
Your heavenly Father adopts you as His child. Then you are also a coheir with Jesus Christ to all Kingdom blessings.
Your old sin nature is crucified with Jesus and you are given a new nature that is clothed in the righteousness of Christ.
You become part of God’s heavenly family, brothers and sisters in Christ, who make up the Body of Christ.
Your focus for life becomes glorifying God through worship, obedience and service, rather than pursuing self-centered, worldly interests.
You are set free from the power of sin so you can live righteously.
Meaningless and futile existence are left behind as your future is filled with promise and blessings.
You have been on a path that will eventually lead you into the very depths of hell where you would spend a horrific eternity apart from God. But instead, you can look forward to the joys of heaven, living in the presence of God forever.
Your capabilities are limited to self-effort, but you will be filled with the resurrection power of Jesus through his indwelling Spirit.
But this new life all begins with spiritual birth. Have you been “born again?” If not, what are you waiting for? God has an amazing life planned for you — one that will last forever!
