The little one has a strong bond with my stomach. While pregnant with his younger brother, the little one would sit with his stomach touching mine. He has special songs for my stomach and has expressed his desire for my stomach not to be small. A few days ago, he finally said, “I want to go in your stomach”. I explained that going back inside my belly is impossible, but “You Must Be Born Again” I said. He said “I don’t want to be born-again”. If only he knew how wonderful it is to be “Born Again”. Someday soon he will know.
You may be wondering, what does it mean to be born again?
Thousands of years ago, a man named Nicodemus asked the same question. Here is the true story:
There was a man named Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader who was a Pharisee. After dark one evening, he came to speak with Jesus. “Rabbi,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with you.” Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” “What do you mean?” exclaimed Nicodemus. “How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?” Jesus replied, “I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit. Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life.So don’t be surprised when I say, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.” John 3:1-8 (NLT)
I have experienced what Jesus said. It is difficult to explain, but I want you to know that my life changed once I was born again. I began a relationship with God and started growing spiritually. I am not afraid of death with this new life, and my life has a purpose that transcends my daily human experience. I face challenges with great hope that something good will come out of whatever I am facing. I want you to have this experience of joy, hope, peace, power, and love that comes from God.
You only need to let go of those things that are not morally right, those things you hide from everyone or those things that bring you deep pain and shame. Born again and new life are synonymous. New life means a new beginning, and the creator of the universe wants you to have a relationship with Him. God will help you if you choose Him today by asking Him to forgive you and surrendering to His Lordship. We all do not like people forcing themselves on us. Likewise God. If you draw close to Him with your heart, you will be saved from destruction and experience freedom.
If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10
