Seeds of Destiny 26 August 2020 Devotional — Being Born Again To Live Again

Topic: Being Born Again To Live Again
To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized.

SCRIPTURE: 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. John 3:3.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized.

Yesterday, we saw what it means to live with eternity in view. This is very important because the consciousness of eternity on earth is key to living with God in eternity.

Today, we shall look at what constitutes readiness and preparedness for eternity with God in heaven.

It is Being Born Again (John 1:12, 1 Peter 1:23, 2 Corinthians 5:17)

To live again in eternity with God in heaven, you must be born again on earth. Therefore, you must be born again to live again.

Now, what does it mean to be born again? To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized. Today, we have many people in church who are not genuinely born again Christians.

Sometime ago, I went to preach in a Christian fellowship somewhere and gave an altar call. The amazing thing was that the leadership of that fellowship came out to give their lives to Christ because they literally got to know what genuine salvation entailed for the first time.

I also heard God’s servant, Pastor W. F. Kumuyi sometime ago, how he went to a church in the United Kingdom to preach the gospel, and the pastors and leaders of that church came out to give their lives to Christ. So, it is possible to be in church and not be born again.

Now, to be born again is to recognize that you are a sinner.

It is to come to a point where you know that you need God’s mercy.

Then you repent before God by asking Him for the forgiveness of your sins.

After this, you ask Jesus Christ to save you by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary.

Then finally, you accept Him into your life as your Lord and saviour, and allow Him to take the centre stage of your life going forward.

When this happens genuinely, there is a witness in your spirit that you are now a child of God (Romans 8:16). There is a peace or an assurance you experience, which is called “The Assurance of Salvation”. And you are overwhelmed with joy.

It is also important to understand that to be born again is to have a definite experience. Let me give you example: I came to know the Lord first of all in the year 1979. I was a young boy of about 11 years old then. I went out for an altar call just as children would do when a call for salvation is made, but I was not grounded in the faith. So, I slid back. I could not trace that experience to a particular date. But in the year of 1986 on the 12th of May, I got a divine encounter that led to my rededication. This time, the experience was definite and clear and that date can’t be forgotten.

Beloved, maybe you find yourself in church but you are not sure if you have given your life to Christ; it is not too late. You can give your life to Jesus today. Don’t assume eternal matters. Assumption brings frustration.

Remember this: To be born again is not just joining a church, growing up in church or being baptized.

Ask yourself objectively: “Am I really born again?”
If you are born again, make up your mind to continue to grow in the Lord.
But if you are not yet born again, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ. In that case, pray the prayer below.

Lord Jesus, I come before You today. I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I cannot help myself. I know that You died for me on the Cross to save me from sins. I confess my sins today and I ask that You come into my life. I accept You as my LORD and Saviour. And from today, I will follow You, forward ever and backward never. Thank You for saving me, Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: If someone had ever asked you: “Are you born again? Do you go to church?” Then you have to examine your life. Culled from “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Ezekiel 4-6

AMAZING FACT: Each of us has around 2,000 taste buds.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: May you experience the reality of the Almighty in your life this day in Jesus’ Name.
