Blessed Assurance

Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 (emphasis mine)
Have you ever come to a place in your life where a definite transformation occurred in your spiritual life? Being Born-again is not “church talk”; Jesus himself stated plainly you are to be born-again. Believing in God and his son, Jesus, is not the same. Truth cannot be reasoned with to suit your preferences, truth is you have to choose Jesus, acknowledge him as the son of God and the Lord of your life, confess that you cannot get into Heaven by your own righteousness and ask him to forgive you of all known and unknown sin.
Take that first step of faith (even if it makes you feel silly or uncomfortable). Follow this simple but life changing act with the study of God’s word, ask the Lord to show you Jesus, and to reveal himself to you. You will start a transformation of becoming like him as you choose truth, purity and righteousness with His power within you.
Go for it!
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
