Where did this "born again" stuff come from anyhow? It came from God, manifest in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16)! Jesus said, "Ye must be born again" (John 3:7).
Why did He come? Because there is "none righteous, no, not one," "for all have sinned," and "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (Romans 3:10, 23 and I Timothy 1:15).
Why did He have to die? "He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities. . .with his stripes we are healed," "but God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. . .being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him," and "we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins" (Isaiah 53:5, Romans 5:8, 9 and Colossians 1:14).
Friend, He even rose from the dead for you! "Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them," "I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand," "and this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son" (Hebrews 7:25, John 10:27, 28 and I John 5:11).
What must I do to be saved? The Bible says "except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish," "let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him," "not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us," and "to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Luke 13:3, Isaiah 55:7, 8, Titus 3:5 and Romans 4:5). "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation," "for whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved" (Romans 10:10, 13).
Now, if you will admit to God you are a sinner, turn to Him with your heart, and confess to Him that you accept the LORD Jesus Christ as your Saviour, He will save you. You say, "It can't be that simple!" Friend, just believe the Bible, put your faith in the LORD Jesus Christ, and accept Him for Who He is, your personal Saviour. Oh, and please read the Bible. If you take my word without God's word, you're a fool! You can read the Bible by clicking the link below!
