Ye Must Be Born Again
"Ye must be born again" said Jesus unto Nicodemus. There is only one way into heaven! YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! What does this mean? Well to be born again is to be saved and to believe that Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior. When someone gets saved then they are born again of the Spirit. Jesus then enters into their heart and leads, guides, and directs them. In order to be saved you must be under the convicting power of God. You must be convicted of your sins and see that you are a sinner and that you are on your way to Hell. Then you must turn and repent of your sins to God and Jesus. You must accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Believe that Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood for your sins and that he rose the third day. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" Romans 10:13. He will not reject you and he will save you if you just simply call upon him under his conviction and accept Jesus and repent of your sins. Turn away from sin and turn to God. Trust in God. Romans 10:9 says that if you "confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved". Believe in him and he will save you!
I got saved in the Sunday school room at our church when I was younger. I don't remember the day or year. I don't even remember what I said. However, I do remember what happened! I remember that I was under the convicting power of God. I was between 8-12 years old and my heart was tore up and I knew that something was wrong. I mean terribly wrong. I have never felt like that before in my life nor have I ever been like that since. God had his convicting power upon me and he was showing me that I was a sinner and that I deserve Hell for my sins. However, God was loving and cares and he showed me that he had sent his son Jesus for my sins. He convicted me and I was at a fork in the road of my life. Either I accept Jesus as my savior or I reject Jesus and I turn away from the Lord. That very day I went to God and accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior! He saved my soul that very day! All I had to do was turn to him and accept Jesus and repent of my sins. I repented of my sins and accepted Jesus. I knew that my sins were wrong and I knew that I couldn't continue down the road I was headed, which was to Hell. I knew that I needed to repent and change. I knew that I needed Jesus! That very day I got saved by God's grace.
Everyone has their own story of how they got saved. However, everyone has to be born again. Everyone has to repent and accept Jesus. Everyone has to be saved in order to enter into Heaven. Jesus loves you and he died for your sins. Jesus shed his blood for your sins. Just simply accept Jesus.
