Good Sunday morning. We hope and pray you are planning to make the most of this brand new day. Hopefully you will experience something new in your life today, not just the same ole’ thing. I will experience being 45 years old for the first time today. 45 years ago I was born and every day was a day of new experiences. Lets talk about being born…
We have lots of friends who have brand new babies in their house. Little ones that are brand new blank slates full of all potential and promise. A brand new life. They are growing, learning, eating & drinking, breathing, and if time carries on, they will have children of their own. There is evidence in the physical sense. They will progress from milk to baby food to veggies to steak (Heb 5:12-14). Progress. They progress from onesies to toddler sizes to big boy clothes to suits & ties. From baby shoes to size 12 football cleats. Progress is an evidence of life, that we have been born. What is the evidence that you have been born again.
In the book of John chapter 3 verse 3 Jesus tells Nicodemus that if he wanted to see the kingdom of God he “must be born again.” This confused the aged Pharisee. He only thought of all the progress he had made as a human and it was impossible in his mind. He was correct in one sense; Human progress has no bearing whatsoever when it comes to being Born again in Christ. In fact, Jesus said in Matthew 18 that unless we “become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” I got to witness that new birth this week when a middle aged man name Oscar was Born again. He looked like a little boy who was in trouble but he found grace in the eyes of Christ!
I am asking you to be honest with yourself and with God. Have your been Born again? ‘But preacher, I have been going to church all my life. I sing gospel music. My husband is a preacher. I attend conferences. I know lots of Bible verses.’ Okay, but have you been Born again. I know too many gospel singers who faced up to the fact that they had sung for years without being saved. I also personally know of a youthful, cancer survivor, mother of two who was raised a preachers daughter and became a preachers wife but in November 2012 pushed passed me in the pew with these words, “I just don’t know!” My birthday buddy wife was a lost preachers wife. But not any more! Praise the Lord! Oh, GLORY! Scuse’ me for a minute while I have a spell! SHewee what a Savior!
Are your Born of the Spirit? If you are you will show evidence of progress. I you are not you can. All things can become new (II Cor 5:17). If you would like to know how to do that call me (615.785.5826) and I will show you in the Bible how you can be Born again. Go to church this morning and don’t wait till the invitation. Go straight to the pastor and tell him you want to be saved. If you are lost we are praying for you. If you are Born again we pray you will tell someone else.
