What is Being Born again?

The term “born again” wasn’t coined by certain denominations as some people may think; it was originally used by Jesus to express the necessity for man’s spiritual rebirth.  Jesus came up with the statement; it is not for a few people it’s for all of us. It is not for the protestants or for the charismatic, It’s for Christians. So the qualification for one to be a Christian is by being born again. One of my favorite teachings of Jesus is on this subject, Lets quickly see it

John 3:1-7 (NKJV) dialogued {There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him}

NICODEMUS: Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”

JESUS: Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God

NICODEMUS: How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?

JESUS: Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again

The Lord Jesus used the term when He addressed Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. The expression puzzled Nicodemus, who then sought to know of being “born again” required a man going back into his mother’s womb to be born a second time

So when you are born again your spirit is born.  What is born of the flesh is flesh (talking about Biological birth ).  Everyone born into the world is born with natural human life. Man is a spirit being and needs the supernatural life to function to his full potentials. When you were born of your mother, you were born of the flesh. Hebrews 12:9 talks about the “fathers of our flesh” and the “Father of spirits.” Your earthly father is the father of your flesh, but God is the Father of spirits. Your spirit comes alive to God when you get born again.

When you are not born again you are dead unto God so which means you cant comprehend the spiritual things. It is not a request is mandatory. Verse 7 says Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ When you are born again you are born of the word of God. 1 Peter 1:23 (NKJV)23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever…

Christians are born from above by the word of  God. I am born of the word, I am born of God. You may be just reading this and you really want to enjoy this life remember  In John 3:16 NKJV For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

You may be there and you are thinking am too bad for salvation, absolutely NO! No one is too bad for salvation everyone is good for salvation. No wonder salvation was Gods plan and not our plan.  Would you love to join me in this amazing life in Christ  You can Click here to Say this short prayer  HERE
