TEXT: JOHN 1:12-13
(12) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
(13) Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
KEY VERSE: ACTS 16:31
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Salvation is a work of grace that involves a transformation that takes place when one repents from sins, confesses them, and turns away from sinful acts. When a sinner repents, he is forgiven, cleansed by the Blood of Christ, renewed by the Spirit and reconciled to God. Without being born again, a person cannot be part of God’s Kingdom.
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.
When a sinner listens to the Gospel, repents of his/her sins, and exercises faith on The Lord Jesus, he receives the experience of salvation. Salvation from sin is also called born again experience or reconciliation with God.
He or she is adopted and becomes a child of God because he has put on the nature of God. He is regenerated, reformed, and transformed into a newness of life. He has received the power to become the child of God; the power to walk in righteousness of God, through faith on the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; and behold, all things are become new.
When you gave your life to Jesus, you rejoiced because you received a new life. You were so joyful, so happy. Even the people around you would know that you are a new person; saved and born-again. That is why the Bible says that you are a new creature and that all things are now new.
You become a changed person with a changed life. You rejoice because your name has entered into the Book of Life. As a born-again Believer, you now have interest in serving God; to live a righteous and godly life, making effort to keep the Commandments of God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What a risk if you are not yet born again!
SONG FOR THE DAY: My life time, I will give God my life time.
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Job 35-37; Acts 14
