Being a “Believer”, a “Christian”, means being “Born again” and no one can be born from a religion, tradition, program or denomination. You can only be born again from a Person, and in this case, the Person is God. How can I be born again you may ask. That is a great question.
To be born again means to be born from above, born of God. The way this happens is by receiving His word by faith. You hear the message that Jesus was crucified, buried and raised to live forever and by faith you receive that word into yourself. He died for your sins and offers you everlasting life. Once you receive this, God says, “You have been crucified with Christ and you no longer live but Christ now lives in you.” Just as a woman receives the seed of a man in order to produce life, we receive the Word/Seed of God and we will bear fruit for God.
So, being born again means we receive God’s promise of new life in Christ by faith and He brings it to pass!
“For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23).
