“Jesus answered, ‘I am telling you the truth; one cannot see the kingdom of God without being born again.’”(John 3:3 GNB)
A person is born physically of human parents but spiritually of the Spirit (John 3:6 GNB).
Take this illustration: There’s man who was about to celebrate his birthday. So invited all his friends and relations. On the deal day, all invited guests gathered in his house with wonderful birthday gifts. They were all happy for him.
In a moment, this man paused from singing the birthday song and everybody was astonished. They started asking him what went wrong. He kept quiet for sometimes and later shouted that he had two birthdays, that the one he was celebrating was the first while the other would be coming up the next two weeks – which was his greatest birthday. His friends and relations were confused and asked him if he was joking or insane. They beckoned on him to explain. He said, ‘the first one is the day my biological parents gave birth to me and the second is the day God begot me as I received Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior’. When they heard this, they broke down and sort to receive Jesus with tears. ‘We need this second birthday!’, they cried. The brother humbly led them to Christ.
Dearly beloved, you need this second birthday which is the greatest miracle that can ever happen to your life. Say this prayer in faith if you truly desire this second birthday.
“Lord Jesus, I am a sinner, forgive me. Wash away my sins, have mercy on me, come into my heart and save my soul. Be my Lord and personal savior. Write my name in the book of life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Congratulations! By grace you are saved through faith.
