Why Must I Be Born Again ?

think 2Because, "Ye MUST be born again!  (John 3:7)  These are the words  of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. But what does it mean to be born again ?    

Born again means to have a spiritual rebirth.

Psalm 51 verse 5 says:

"Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

We are born as sinners, with a sinful nature.  If we continue as we are, and die unsaved, then we will experience the wrath of God in hell. Therefore, a change has to be brought about, if we are going to be in Heaven.

You see, as we are, we cannot enter Heaven. Revelation 21 verse 27 says:

"And there shall in no wise enter into it (ie Heaven) any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie....

How can this change come about ? The Lord Jesus said, in John 3 verse 3:

" Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.

He restated this in verse 7:  "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

Nicodemus (to whom the Lord was speaking) did not understand this. He thought the Lord meant physical rebirth. The Lord went on to explain in verse 8:

".....so is every one that is born of the Spirit."

We need a spiritual rebirth.

A lot of people don't like the words "born again." But these were words used by the Lord Jesus, and they are Scriptural, and  not only that, it is a NECESSITY !


"Ye must be born again, or never enter Heaven.
It's only Blood-Washed ones are there -
The ransomed and forgiven."

"Born again, there's really been a change in me!
Born again, just like Jesus said.
Born again, and all because of Calvary -
I'm glad, so glad, that I've been born again !"
