Question: "What does it mean to be a born again Christian?"
Answer: What does it mean to be a born again Christian? The classic passage from the Bible that answers this question
is John 3:1-21. The Lord Jesus Christ is talking to Nicodemus, a prominent Pharisee and member of the Sanhedrin (a ruler of
the Jews). Nicodemus had come to Jesus at night. Nicodemus had questions to ask Jesus.
As Jesus talked with Nicodemus, He said "...Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see
the kingdom of God." Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into
his mother's womb and be born?" Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the
Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit
is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again...." (John 3:3-7).
The phrase "born again" literally means "born from above." Nicodemus had a real need. 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 "born again" also carries the idea "to become children of God" through trust in the name of Jesus
The question logically comes, "Why does a person need to be born again?" The Apostle Paul in Ephesians 2:1 says,
"And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins..." To the Romans in Romans 3:23, the Apostle wrote,
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." So, a person needs to be born again in order to have their
sins forgiven and have a relationship with God.
How does that come to be? Ephesians 2:8,9 states, "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of
yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works lest any man should boast." When one is "saved," he/she has
been born again, spiritually renewed, and is now a child of God by right of new birth. Trusting in Jesus Christ, the One who
paid the penalty of sin when He died on the cross, is what it means to be "born again" spiritually. "Therefore,
if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation..." (2 Corinthians 5:17a).
If you have never trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, will you consider the prompting of the Holy Spirit
as He speaks to your heart? You need to be born again. Will you pray the prayer of repentance and become a new creation in
Christ, today? "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe
on His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" (John 1:12-13).
If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and be born again, here is a sample prayer. Remember, saying this prayer
or any other prayer will not save you. It is only trusting in Christ that can save you from sin. This prayer is simply a way
to express to God your faith in Him and thank Him for providing for your salvation. "God, I know that I have sinned against
you and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could
be forgiven. I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness - the gift of eternal
