The Plan of Salvation: I Am Really Born Again Pt. 2 – Lesson 22
Subtitle: I Have Repented and Turned Away From Sin (Pt.2)
Followers of Jesus Christ, GOD wants us to understand and accept that we are truly born again, immediately, when we repent, turn away from of our sins by abandoning this world, and openly confessing Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and LORD. This is the answer to Nicodemus’s question, “How can a man be born again when he is old?”
The process of rebirth begins with being repentant, deeply sorrowful for the sins we have committed against GOD. Understand that as a result of our sins that He sent His Son Jesus to become sin for us and receive the penalty of sin, eternal death, eternal separation from GOD. Understand that He then imputed unto us (counted towards us as our own) the righteousness of Jesus upon our confession of our sins and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and LORD. Understand that we then have the right to accept the gift of the Holy Spirit into our lives to have full legal authority to operate within us and through us to fulfill GOD’s divine purpose, plan and assignment for creating us in the earth as His offspring.
This begins the process of renewing our minds through the understanding of GOD’s WORD revealed through the empowering Holy Spirit. We then begin to live the life GOD has given us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, by following Jesus’ example of living by faith; faith in the testimony of GOD, His WORD, Jesus Christ His Son.
Now we are reborn. Now we must seek out those who don’t know Jesus in the pardon of their sins and offer to them this spiritual rebirth, for they too are the offspring of GOD. They too have a divine purpose, plan and assignment of GOD. They just don’t know it yet. They will through the power of the Holy Spirit once we confess Jesus with our mouths and tell them.
