Being Born Again

Explain being or getting saved and being born again.

Sin came into the world through Adam, the first man whom God created. All of mankind, and that includes women, have been born into this world with a sin nature. (Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: ) God sent His Son Jesus into the world to redeem mankind by dying on the cross and taking our sins upon himself so that we could have our sins forgiven by God. It was Jesus' sinless blood that was pure enough to pay for your sins and mine. It is through faith that we believe that the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ is sufficient and able to not only cleanse away our sins but is able to keep us for all eternity.

See the following verses:

  • Punishment for Sin: Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; Provision of God: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • John 3:16,17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
  • Romans 5:9,10 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
  • Romans 10:9,13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The term "born again" is just another way of explaining how God redeems a person from their sin's wages.

As the following verses explain:

  • John 3:3,7 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
  • 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
