AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST WHERE YOU ARE TOTALLY TRANSFORMED INTO A NEW CREATURE IS THE GREATEST MOMENT YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE. Heaven’s joy will flood your soul and at the same time the burden of sin will disappear. Martin Luther rightly said, “A Born Again Christian can do what they please to do.” When you have been totally “re-born” by the Word and the Spirit, you are a free soul. A “New Born” Christian is not bound to the Law, they actually live above the Law. The law was a “school master” to bring us to Christ. It shows us how wretched we are and how desperately we need a Redeemer.

We must remember that regardless of how religious or upright we live, unless we are “Born Again” we are still eternally lost. The multitude of decent people that will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire is the saddest thought I ever have. I watch people, share their burdens, even preach funerals and see their lost condition and weep. Jesus left no room to doubt, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:3b)

The way Jesus Christ preached this truth was unique. A well known and honest man asked the question that opened the door. “Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” (Saint John 3:4-8) This is the absolute truth.

Churches are full of devoted members that have never been “Born Again”. Mostly the burden of this fact lays at the feet of preachers and church leaders. The soft sell of religion has laid the foundation for this calamity. “Just say that you believe that He is the sacrifice and claim Him as your Savior and you are now a Christian.” It is that simple but much deeper. A “Born Again” experience is the work of Holy Ghost power and the individual will be totally transformed. Until that happens you are only religious regardless of how sincere. A “Born Again” life has been changed from self-centered to God-centered. They are a brand new individual. Here’s how Apostle Paul said it. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;…” (II Corinthians 5:17-18)


  1. RE: ‘A “Born Again” life has been changed from self-centered to God-centered.’

    AMEN to that! A work of the Holy Spirit alone – upon one that needs a Savior,
    upon one who KNOWS they are ‘wretched and miserable and blind’! Without Christ we are
    nothing, and ‘in Christ, we can do all things’…even the “ministry of reconciliation”!
    That is why we must “grow” in His Grace, to be useful vessels.

    The Born Again message is needed today….many are deceived thinking they can live a
    Christian(like) life without Christ!

    Thank you for the Gospel that is seldom preached today! All these feelgooders and emergers with their emergent churches full of tens of thousands heading for hell because their pastors are leading them straight to hell!

    I am glad that I learn every day. I am not perfect but I am forgiven.

    Paul never glamorized the gospel! It is not success, but sacrifice
    It’s not a glamour’s gospel ,but a bloody gospel, a gory gospel, and a sacrificial gospel!
    5 minutes inside eternity and we will wish that we had sacrificed more!!! Wept more, bled more, grieved more, loved more
    ,prayed more, given more!!!
    God’s wounds cure, sin’s kisses kill.

  4. Many years ago, I heard a message that struck a chord in my heart. It said there is a difference in being saved and born again. I had never thought about it before but I know that I am born again and I am completely different. The fruit on the tree says so. I was raised “saved” but met the Lord Jesus and was made a new creature. You can tell when a person has met the Lord of Glory. They are forever changed!!

  5. From my observation the “born again” or, perhaps “born from above” experience gnerally does not produce an instantaneous change in a person in the sense that the desire and capability toward sin suddenly disappears.It certainly didn’t with Paul who revealed his own struggle in Romans 7:7-25.

    On a personal note, even after 34 years of sobriety, there is still that subtle yet nagging draw of alcohol on me. I still get angry, still can be selfish, (add to that list here!!) still just the opposite of what I should be all too often.

    The point here is that while we are in the flesh we are ALL works in progress and our individual battles of light against darkness will go on – until that day when Jesus calls us home in our glorified bodies when we can at long last be sinless just as he is!

  6. The New Birth or Regeneration is a great experience with God. It let’s the believer know for certain that he or she has passed from death to life. It is a crises experience, instantaneous. How do you know you are saved? You know you are saved because you love God and you love the Brethren.

  7. A born again Christian can do what they please to do?
    The word “Christian” is nowhere in Greek or Hebrew scripture.
    This is dangerous teaching. The Bible doesn’t say this. We will all be held accountable for our sins; losing rewards in the first Judgement of Christ. “Depart from Me – I never knew you” will be heard by many believers. All fearful, liars & fornicators will be thrown into the lake of fire at the last Judgement before the Almighty. Please, please, don’t be telling people this.

    Dear Judy,
    You completely misunderstood what Brother Chambers said. I never glorify sin. Here was my thought.. A “BORN AGAIN” person is so utterly transformed that they obey God from the heart. They only do what they want because they are a NEW CREATURE in Christ and their wants have been completely changed. Remember that great truth above in this article. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;…” (II Corinthians 5:17-18)
