Question to Jesus (from John chapter 3):
"How can I be saved?" Jesus replied with, "I tell
you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless
he is born again." Nicodemus knew only one way to
God, the way of law and logic. He was a respected
man, a leader of the people, a religious authority and
teacher, who knew the law. Nicodemus misunderstood
Jesus' words to mean a second birth: "How can
anyone be born after having grown old? Can one
enter a second time into the mother’s womb and be born
again?" Nicodemus was still arguing with his
mind. His logic could not wrap around the truths
that Jesus was telling him. He needed a change of
his heart; a spiritual transformation. New birth,
being born again, is an act of God whereby eternal life
is imparted to the person who believes (2 Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:3; 1 John 2:29; 3:9; 4:7; 5:1-4, 18). John 1:12, 13 indicates that being
"born again" also implies "becoming children of God"
through trust in the name of Jesus Christ.

Looking for answers? Salvation is available to you right now, only by the grace of Jesus Christ, and is a gift to you!
How do we take advantage of this? Salvation isn't ours until we accept that gift. Here's how:
I John 1:9 — "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins, and purify us from all unrighteousness."
Romans 10:9 — "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Romans 6:23 — "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Have you accepted this gift? If you haven't, then consider these scriptures:
Romans 3:10 — "There is no one righteous, not even one." Nobody escapes hell on his or her own merits.
Romans 3:23 — "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." None of us is worthy of heaven.
Romans 5:8 — "But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
3:16 — "For God so loved the world that He
gave His only Son, that whosoever believes in
Him shall have eternal life." God knew you long
before you were born and loved you so much that His
son, Jesus, came to save us from our sins by paying
the sin penalty for us, which is death.
So how do you receive God's gift
of forgiveness and salvation?
"Jesus, I believe I am a sinner. I believe you are the Savior and the Lord. I believe that you love me enough to die for my sins. I confess ALL of my sins to you. I desire to begin a new life with you. I accept your gift of salvation. I accept your love for me, and your direction of my life. Amen."
If you've sincerely prayed that prayer and accepted that free gift of salvation, then please tell a Christian friend, family member, or pastor as soon as possible. Ask the Lord to bring godly counselors into your life to answer your questions and help you grow spiritually, remembering that God's Holy Word is the final authority. Nourish your faith by attending a Bible-believing church nearby, fellowshipping with other believers, and reading the Holy Bible.
Why read the Bible? It contains the mind of God, the state of humankind, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are Holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. It's the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword, and the Christian's charter. Christ is its grand subject. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully.
