Born a second time?
There is no doubt that approaching the things of God in a cold theological way is not enough when it comes to being convinced that you should give your life over to The Son of God, – done so – through prayer.
But what’s the difference between studying presented truth, perhaps presented in some book of theology from whatever source and coming into a Living relationship with The Christ of God?
There is no fixed way that a person must adhere to, when it comes to experiencing the born again experience. No fixed way in the sense that every personality is different and must discover God’s working in their life, as it lines up with His Word.
The term ‘born again’ is found in the gospel of John 1/1:
Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
So Jesus is calling all, to an experience that He calls ‘being born again’.
Unless one is born again…..
Well – unless one is – we cannot see, – experience, – understand – know the things of God as God intended us to know them.
However many have started their born again journey in the very way I have suggested at the beginning – namely: in a cold theological way.
The reason for this is that such a person may be genuinely looking for the answer or answers regarding this born again experience.
And as I have stated before a number of times – the door of truth must be gone through or initially sought before this born again experience can take place.
Buy the truth and do not sell it—
wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free
Notice I have clumped these few verses together without even giving the references – simply to say these verses could be the start of the search that will bring you to the born again experience.
Rather than elaborating on the ‘how to’ – let this be the start of your own search of the scriptures, if as yet you have not been born again.
These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.
