We Must Be Born Again


”The most frightening aspect of Christ’s words, “You must be born again” (John 3:7) was the character of the person to whom he spoke them.Christ spoke these words to a nocturnal visitor two thousand years ago. On other occasions he expressed the same thought in the following way: “Except you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into thekingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3 AKJV). These “excepts” stand between every person and eternal life.Consider the most frightening aspect of Christ’s words, “You must be born again”; namely, the character of the person to whom he spoke them. It was not to Mary Magdalene, a lady of the night. . It was not to Zacchaeus, a cheat and thief.Christ’s words were addressed to a man of spotless reputation who spoke Sabbath by Sabbath at one of the leading metropolitan churches: Nicodemus, the teacher of Israel. (See John 3:10, RV.)Which of us would claim a character as lofty as his, or a mind as enlightened as his? Yet even Nicodemus needed to be born again. No wonder that when Wesley was asked why he preached so often on the text “You must be born again,” his reply was, “Because you must be born again.’”


So , have you been born again?

If not call me👊
