"What Does It Mean to be 'Born Again?'"


What is all this talk about being "born again"? Isn't it just a lot of religious nonsense? NO! But there are many people talking about it that don't know what its all about themselves! It has nothing to do with "religion". Religion is just man's attempt to reach God's level. It won't work. No church or denomination will ever reach God by its own methods.

"How can I reach God, then?" Don't! LET GOD REACH OUT TO YOU! He has through His Son, Jesus. Now wait! Before you lay this down ... I'm not talking about religion, or church, or anything like that... I'm talking about a personal, one-to-one relationship with Jesus. It is available!

HOW? By being born again! Jesus said, "... except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3) "But how can I be born again if not through religion?" By doing what God said to do! Listen to this: "... 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 10:9) Being saved is being born again. Its that simple! This scripture is all that you need to know to be born again.


You don't have to be a Bible scholar! Just pray according to that scripture, out of your heart . . . "GOD, ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD, I COME TO YOU CONFESSING JESUS AS MY LORD, I BELIEVE THAT YOU, FATHER, HAVE RAISED YOUR SON, JESUS FROM THE DEAD. I THANK YOU NOW THAT ACCORDING TO ROMANS 10:9, I AM BORN AGAIN, I AM SAVED! IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN!"

... NOW, if you ever think, "I'm not really born again", you'll know better! Just say, "I am born again, according to Romans 10:9, because I did what it said!" Here are some other scriptures for you to study concerning your salvation ... 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; John 3:1-18; Romans 6:23; John 14:6; Revelation 3:20; Titus 3:5; Ephesians 2:8, 9; 1 Peter 2:24
