John 3:3 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Kevin Woodson’s Blog tells the story oh so well. HERE
Being born again means a lot to me. In 1990 when I was in a church a friend asked me if I was born again and I said: What does that mean? She asked me if I had made Jesus Lord of my life and accepted Him as my Lord and Savior. I shrugged my shoulders and said: “Yeah, I guess I am.” Tradition is a terrible thing. I was an usher, a regular volunteer at church, didn’t miss a Sunday, had gone to church all my life, married with a family and didn’t have a clue what being born again meant; let alone what knowing this would do to me.
Old things are passed away and all things are become new. It will not be easy; you’ll have to work at it, but it is worth the effort.
Let’s zone in on the important stuff. Believing is pretty easy. It always has been for me. I actually felt sorry for people who did not believe in God until I read about how the devil blinds folks; now I understand.
The hard thing for some people is truly making Jesus Lord and Master of their lives. I always tell one of my friends: “You’re not Superwoman or the Bionic Woman; let Go and Let God! Then we laugh! Because we know it’s true.
When you choose to put Jesus in charge of your life; He’ll take over.
