WHY YOU NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN
You are an embodiment of a personality which contains your body and your soul. You have a physical body, inside of it is a soul, and between both are spirit and self: these are channels. Your spirit is like your God’s given conscience to give you the knowledge of what is good and wrong and to suggest the good for you to choose. Your self is an adamic, sinful nature which Satan uses to suggest evil, sinful thoughts and suggestions into your mind. In between bad and good suggestions is your ability, or freedom of choice as a free moral agent.
Everyone was conceived and born in sin right from the fall of Adam. Psalm 51:5, “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.” With this natural and sinful nature, your soul is defiled and doomed to destruction; your conscience is contaminated as your own “self” dominates. That is your real picture, in the real sense. Urgently as a matter of reality, you need Jesus Christ in your life to help you with your real situation.
Since everybody is born with a bad nature, and bred with a bad notion, there is need to be born again. John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” To be born again means to have your bad nature, life transforms to a good and godly one. That only happens through Jesus Christ. You need to accept Jesus Christ into your life before He can transforms your life. Then how? Since you were conceived in sin, born in sin, and brought up in sin, you need to admit you are a sinner. But admitting you are a sinner will not make a difference except you ask Jesus to forgive your sins and you are ready to forsake your sins and old lifestyles. So you confess them to Jesus Christ, ask Him to forgive you and also cleanses you with His precious blood that was shed on the cross. Then you ask Him to save you.
Here is the truth: Jesus Christ is the only One empowered by God to forgive sins, no matter how terrible or how long the sins have been in your life. Another good thing is that when Jesus forgives you, He will also cleanse you, they are two different things which happen simultaneously through salvation in Jesus Christ: Forgiveness in Christ is to receive not just a presidential pardon, but heavenly pardon of all your sins, all! And the cleansing by the Blood of Jesus Christ is when He removes the contamination and consequences of those sins in your soul, in your conscience and inner man.
What are you waiting for?
Then what are you waiting for? Now you need to bring your life to Jesus and surrender it unto Him for His transformation and regeneration. You don’t need to delay further. You need to give your old life, polluted life up to Jesus so He can give you a brand new life in Him. Delay can be dangerous, do it now! Admit your sins, surrender all to Jesus, ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you. Accept Him to be the Lord of your life and determine to follow and please Him for the rest of your life till you get to heaven, no turning back to sin and the sinful world.
Yes, you about to experience unspeakable peace of divine touch, unusual.
Just pray it in prayer now!
God bless you!
Gideon Akande, the Evangelist
