How can we be born again? The plan of salvation is right in the Bible. God gives us His clear plan for being “born again.” First, we must acknowledge God as the Creator of everything, and accept our humble position in God's creation. "You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created." (Revelation 4:11). Next, we must realize that we are sinners. “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Because we are sinners, we are condemned to death. “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This includes eternal separation from God. But God loved each of us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to bear our sin and die in our place. (John 3:16) “God demonstrates His love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Although we cannot understand how, God said our sins were laid upon Jesus and He died in our place. Jesus became our substitute. It’s very clear in the Bible, believe in Jesus as the one who bore your sins, died in your place, was buried, and whom God resurrected. It’s Christ’s blood and resurrection that assures us of everlasting life when we call on Him as our Lord and Savior. "For whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved." (Romans 10:13). “Whosoever” includes each and every one of us. Therefore, if you understand that you are a sinner, and you believe that Jesus Christ came as the one and only Redeemer of sin, then you understand the plan of salvation. 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. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. (Romans 10:9-10) The question is – are you ready to implement the plan, by receiving God’s gift of His Son, Jesus Christ? If so, believe in Christ, repent of your sins, and commit the rest of your life to Him as Lord:
Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge to you that I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross in my place, for my sins and rose from the dead to give me salvation. I now accept the Lord Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, trusting Him alone to give me eternal lie and a relationship with you. Thank you for saving me, and helping me from this day on to live a life pleasing to you. If you decided to receive Jesus today, welcome to God's family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment. • Get baptized as commanded by Christ. • Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ. • Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time. Just develop the daily habit of praying to Him and reading His Word. Ask God to increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible. • Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus. Develop a group of believing friends to answer your questions and support you. • Find a local church where you can worship God. Dear Lord I say to you that I am a sinner and cannot save myself. I ask you to forgive me of my sins, come into my heart and save me. For I believe what the bible says that Jesus died on the cross for my sins, and that God raised him from the dead on the third day. Your word says it I confess this with my mouth and believe it in my heart I will saved. Please come into my heart and save me and give me eternal life.
