John 3:3-7

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.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time in his mother's womb, and be born?

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.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Being born again is a spiritual re-birth.  You are born of the Spirit of God.  The Holy Spirit was sent into the earth to carry out the new birth.  When you make Jesus the Lord of your life, the Holy Spirit comes to indwell you and causes your spirit to be re-created.

2nd Corinthians 5:17

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things pass away, behold, all things become new.

When you accept Jesus as your Lord, you become a new creature, old things pass away and all things become new.  You are re-born from sin and death to righteousness and new life.

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life, then you are separated from God by sin.  You are the reason God sent Jesus to the cross.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.

2nd Corinthians 5:21

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

"Sin is the reason Jesus came to earth.  He died on the cross and went to hell for one reason: to pay the price for sin.  Once that price was paid, Jesus was raised from the dead, triumphant over Satan; and the sin problem was taken care of."

God does not hold your sin against you.  The only thing keeping you from becoming a child of God is failure to turn from your present world and your present god, which is Satan, and make Jesus your Lord and savior.

Even though God sent Jesus to pay for your sin--even though he holds nothing against you--you can still go straight to hell.  Why?  Because you have not made the choice to receive Jesus as your own personal Lord and Savior.  You have a free will.  You have a right to choose your own destiny.  God will not force you to receive salvation.  The choice is yours.

John 1:12

But as many as received him, to them he gave the power to become sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

If you do choose to receive Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, God will receive you as His very own child.

Romans 10:8-11

But what saith it?  The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shall confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.


If you want to become a christian please pray this prayer from the depths of your heart:

Dear Heavenly Father, In the name of Jesus, I present myself to You.

I pray and ask Jesus to come into my life.  I confess that I have sinned against you and ask that you forgive me for all of my sins.

I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus is the son of God and that you raised him from the dead.  This moment I make Jesus Lord of my life.

I denounce you Satan and I turn from the life of darkness and receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior.

Jesus come into my heart.  I believe this moment that I am saved.  I am a child of Almighty God!
