How to be Born-Again
Salvation means “To be delivered from sin and death, saved from the wrath of God, and receive the gift of everlasting life.”
The need for Salvation dates back to the “Garden of Eden” and was caused by the original sin of Adam and Eve.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life, (John 3:16 KJV).”
Plan of Salvation”
Jesus paid the ultimate price for your Salvation. Because of His tremendous love, Jesus’ death on the cross makes it possible for anyone to end the separation from God and secure the promise of eternal life.
You can be Born Again
Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Rev 3:20 KJV ).
God so Loved the World
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him would not perish, but have ever lasting life,” (John 3:16).
The above Scripture tells us that those who accept Jesus into their life/heart will receive a Glorious Everlasting life with Him in Heaven, but those who refuse will perish, meaning they will receive an eternal damnation with Satan in Hell.
Jesus lived a sinless life while on this earth. He alone was worthy and Holy enough to die on the cross to pay for your sins.
The decision to be born again is one that only you can make; no one else can do it for you.
But when you do He will be with you to comfort, guide, help, and counsel all your earthly days, and when your life on earth is over, you will spend eternity in Heaven with Him. What a wonderful plan of salvation!
Becoming born again will be a decision you will never regret, a decision that will take you through eternity with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
All it takes is to believe in your heart, and to profess (say) out loud that you believe in God, and that Jesus is God’s Son who came here to die for your sins.
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” (Rom 10:9-10).
When you believe the Scripture above, and can make the above statements of faith, you can ask Jesus to come into your heart, and He will. And you can do that right now.
Sometimes people are overly concerned with using the correct words in their prayer to become born again, but they shouldn’t because Jesus already knows what is in their heart.
He knows they want to be born again and filled with His Holy Spirit, and that is all that counts. So, the specific words you use are not what is most important.
However, if it will help you feel more secure, to speak the exact words, you can follow the prayer below. Everything God does is perfect meaning that your Salvation is secure throughout eternity.
If you have previously asked Christ into your heart and for any reason feel you have slipped or are uncertain about your salvation you can ask Jesus into your heart once again, and then there can be no doubt.
The Sinner’s Prayer
“The Sinner’s Prayer” is prayed by those who have the desire to be born again.
For Those who Desire to become Born-Again
“Lord Jesus, I believe in God and that you are the Son of God as recorded in Your Word. I realize that I am a sinner, and I believe you died for my sins. I now turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and ask for a new life with you. I ask you to come into my heart and life. I receive you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me, Amen.”
interfere with your new Christian life, remember that God’s Holy Spirit is always with you and that His power is much greater than Satan’s.
Read your Bible every day, and learn to listen to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead you into all truth. You will grow in your knowledge and understanding of God’s Word and will soon become a mature Christian.
The Angels in Heaven Rejoiced!
Be sure to tell others about your new life in Christ.
“Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Luke 15:10
