KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:3 “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”.
In our key scripture the Lord answered Nicodemus that unless a man is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.
The scripture has concluded that all men are sinners (Rom 3:23): Psalm 51:5 says “In sin did my mother conceive me” please I want you to be sincere with yourself. There are so many things people do that they cannot stop. Matthew 5:28 “But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her in his heart”. This is just one of the many areas that most people fall short. Men sin because they have a sinful nature. Romans 7:15 ” For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I”. Men are slaves to sin. The answer is a new nature free from the power of sin.
To be born again is to receive a new life or new nature. 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation old things have passed away, behold all things have become new”.
When a man is born again he becomes a son of God. A son of man means, born by man, and a son of God means born by God. John 1:12, 13 “But as many as received Him to them gave he power to become the sons of God even to them that believed on His name. Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, but were born of God”.
As a son of God with the life and nature of God you now live a life of the sons of God. If you used to tell lies you are no more a liar, and must say the truth always. You cease to become the man or woman who was morally weak. You can now say no to the dictates of the flesh.
To be born again means you have received ability or grace to do what is right. Titus 2:11, 12 “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all man. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously and godly in this present world.
Receive Jesus today as your saviour and Lord so you would be saved from the power of sin.
Lord Jesus, by receiving you into my life, I receive your nature to live above sin. I believe you died for my sins and I confess you as the saviour and Lord of my soul. Come into my life. Thank you for saving my soul.
Romans 7:19-20 “For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me”.
Romans 6:14 ” For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace”.
