Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:3 NLT)
What does it mean to be born again? Jesus said Nicodemus that he must be born again to be in God’s kingdom. Nicodemus didn’t understand so Jesus explained that Jesus came to this earth to bring eternal life to those that believe in Him. We are not born into the kingdom of God. All are accepted regardless of background, color, position in life, even sinners. All that is required is to believe that Jesus is the Son of God. He draws us to Himself. He fills us with His Spirit. We become changed, the old life is gone, and we are a new creature. Satan’s yoke has been broken. We are now Christ’s.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT)
