I’m what's called a Born-Again Christian, that’s somebody who promises to live their life in the same way that Jesus would have. This can happen when you're younger or can be like me, I was in my fifties. So basically there is a prayer of salvation that you sincerely pray and ask Jesus to forgive your sins, where you agree that you know Jesus came to save our sins and rose again and that you want him to be the Lord of your life …it really is that simple. Being a born again Christian is not complicated - it's not about being religious ….its relationship not religion, joy not judgement and the ultimate truth is that God is love, that’s basically it – a Christian is somebody who follows Jesus Christ and so you're doing the things that you know He would want you to do.
It’s not about rules and regulations and an enormous God in a long white frock with a beard and a big stick of lightening, waiting to zap you every time you make a mistake. The grace of God forgives your sins so long as you are sorry and turn away from them. The key here is to want to be different and not to make the same mistakes again….repent means to turn away.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" John 14:6 This is very clear, make no mistake, there is only one way to have a relationship with God, and that is through His son Jesus. I invite you to join us, you will never be the same again. This is one of those wonderful little poems that God drops into my journal when I spend time with him during my day. Aware of Him Keep giving me these butterflies, that often make me sigh. Keep nudging me away from things you want me to pass by. I'm asking for your wisdom Lord, and being quiet and still and resting in your presence Lord and I'm listening to your will. Drop those treasures in me, let them settle way down deep Deep into my spirit Lord, so I know them in my sleep It's only by your grace and love, that we celebrate free choice, I'm here to do your bidding Lord and listen to your voice.
If you’ve ever been in a place where you feel that you just know there is something else in life and you want a deeper understanding of who God is, then you can do that through the person of Jesus, you can say this prayer....after which you will be a new person in Christ...hence the term born again Dear Jesus, I believe that you came to forgive us our sins and that you died and rose again. I want you to be in my life. Please forgive my sins, I will turn away from my past and I invite you to become my Lord and Saviour.. Amen
