The Experience of Being BORN AGAIN

 

All knowledge of the world

became of no consequence,

the moment JESUS

alighted upon my soul.

Now, 

He is ALL I care to know.


How will your life change, once you become born again?

You will be changed forever.

Radically.

Here's what to expect from being born again:

1. You will hunger and thirst for the WORD of GOD.

2. You will seek JESUS.

3. You will tailor your life and work on His WORD.

4. The ways of the world won't interest you anymore.


Are you prepared for such a change?

You will become a new person in CHRIST.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (King James Version)

17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, 

he is a new creature

old things are passed away; 

behold, all things are become new.


Finally, you will see the world for what it really is.

You will become aware of who runs the world.

The world will cease to fascinate you.

Instead, you will be focused on JESUS alone.

You will be guided by the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD.

So you may know who JESUS is.

All things will be made clear, depending on your heart's desire to know things of the LORD.

You will want to obey His commandments.

You will want to be aware of your sins.

You will repent of your sins.

You will do all you can, so you won't sin anymore.

You will finally realize how GREAT Jesus' sacrifice was, in giving up His life, so we may be saved.

But don't let me tell you.

Experience it for yourself.

Call upon the LORD now.

We all do, especially if things don't make sense in the world, or our lives don't add up.

Or if we're so down and out, and we need answers, or help.

I've been through all that.

God came to rescue me -- from myself.

Wouldn't you rather follow SOMEONE who has the answers?

Someone who will lead you to eternal life?

Someone who has always loved you?

Someone who has been faithful to us, no matter the gravity of our sins?

Someone who never changes?

Hebrews 13:8 (KJV)

8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, 

and to day, 

and for ever.


You can only understand things of heaven, if you have the spiritual discernment for it.

1 Corinthians 2:14 (KJV)

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God

for they are foolishness unto him: 

neither can he know them, 

because they are spiritually discerned.


So you must become born again.

John 3:3-8 (KJV)

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, 

and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, 

and thou hearest the sound thereof, 

but canst not tell whence it cometh, 

and whither it goeth: 

so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
