Do you feel lost, or like maybe you’ve done something wrong that you can’t seem to undo?
Do you ever feel like you could use a fresh start? Well, have no fear– help is here!
Today we’re going to cover how you can get “born again” and be rescued from the eternal fire of Hell.
Following a few simple steps, you can start over and make things right with God.
Let’s dive in and learn all about what it means (and takes!) to be born again.
To come to the Lord and be born again, begin by speaking to Him in prayer. The power of the Lord is infinite—ask Him for His help and guidance as you seek a new path.
Pray sincerely and honestly, asking for clarity and peace in your heart. Know that the Lord heard you and will answer your prayer with grace and mercy.
The second step towards a life of faith in Christ is to familiarize yourself with the book of Romans.
This letter from Paul to the church in Rome gives us an introduction to the gospel and outlines the path to a new life committed to Jesus. It shows us how we can live in obedience to His teachings, ensuring we always strive for righteousness.
As you get to know these passages and what they mean for your spiritual life, you will be equipped to experience true transformation within yourself.
Realizing that all have fallen short of God's standard is the third step in being born again in Christ.
According to Romans 3:23, "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." No matter who we are, we can never measure up to God's perfect standard.
But through faith in Jesus, we can accept God's forgiveness and mercy so we can be made right with Him.
Have you ever let slip a curse word or wagered for something in the past? If so, you may think it doesn't make you a sinner.
But the Bible tells us differently – even one sin makes us guilty according to its laws. We are all sinners, and no one is exempt.
This means you need to recognize your guilt and seek a remedy from God or face eternal separation from God.
Understanding that God is a holy God is the fourth step to being born again in Christ.
Romans 6:23b tells us, "for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." This is His way of punishing sinners who have broken his laws.
Despite His love, God is obligated by His holiness to punish sin. He can never tolerate evil and must bring justice against those who choose to do wrong.
That's why He has to send sinners to Hell; it's the only way His holiness and righteousness can be maintained.
We should not expect any less of a Holy God and seek justification through faith in Jesus Christ, so we don't have to face that judgment.
Acknowledging that Jesus died for our sins is the fifth step to being born again in His name. Romans 6:23 tells us, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Similarly, Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates his love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
By putting our faith and trust in Him and confessing that He died for us and rose again, we receive the promise of spiritual renewal - and are born again into His grace.
Jesus’ death was no tragedy—it was a triumph.
Prophecies stretching back thousands of years all foretold of Jesus, the savior sent from God, who would one day come and rescue humanity. In his final act of self-sacrifice, Jesus willingly gave his life to pay the price for our sins and take the punishment we deserved.
By sacrificing himself on the cross, Jesus brought us redemption—and a way back to God.
It was an incredible act of love that changed the world forever.
It's time to turn away from your sins and make it right with God.
Repent your wrongdoings and ask for forgiveness – he's more than ready to answer your call. Romans 10:9 says, "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." And Romans 10:13 affirms, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Take a step in faith and accept the grace of Jesus Christ – it's worth taking the risk for something as extraordinary as eternal life.
True repentance involves acknowledging our sins, taking responsibility for them, and turning away from our old sinful behaviors. It means understanding how our choices have caused pain to others and being willing to change genuinely.
When we repent and accept the grace that Jesus offers, we are reborn, renewed, and restored in His mercy and love. True repentance can free us from the burden of guilt or shame associated with our past actions and find true salvation for our souls.
So please open your heart to Christ's abundant grace and experience the joy of forgiveness.
Once we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior, this decision leads us to peace in God's presence.
Romans 5:1 states, "Therefore, since we have been made right in God's sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us."
Romans 8:1 similarly states, "So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.". As we devote ourselves to Him and accept His faith, our lives become intertwined with His love, hope, and mercy.
Romans 8:38-39 explains, "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can't, and life can't. The angels can't, and the demons can't.
Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away.
No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Ultimately, through faith, we have enduring peace with God.
