Are You Born Again

By Judy Davis –

To be born again we must accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Master of our lives. We will no longer desire the things of the world such as those things we did before accepting Christ. It may take time for those desires to leave, as it is a process. Change will come as we allow the Holy Spirit to transform us.

I have been a born-again Christian for over 30 years. I knew God had touched my heart and life supernaturally when I called out to Him in the midst of pain and suffering. Rebirth had come! Everything was brighter, grass was greener, the sun was brilliant and the moon had a glow of light bursting forth in the darkness. It was as if I had been seeing through a dark glass and had put glasses on for the first time after going to an optometrist.

After being reborn, I could not read and study enough of God’s Word. I was thirsty for the things of God. My life started changing. Today I still have not reached where I would like to be in my walk with Christ, but know in my heart He is leading me beside the still waters.

You may ask, “How I can be reborn?” God loves you and it is His desire for everyone to receive salvation.

First, admit you are a sinner. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 NIV).

Second, believe in Jesus Christ. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NIV).

Third, confess your sins and ask God to change your life. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NIV).


Father, change my heart O God, make it new. Help me to lean on you every day so that my life will be pleasing to you. Giving thanks for the changes you have already made and the ones you plan to make.

“You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” (John 3:7-8 NIV).
