What does it mean to be born again?


By Dr. John W. Lewis - Religion Writer



John 3:7, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.”

How can I be born again? To be born again is a spiritual birth. It is to be adopted into God’s family by spiritual regeneration by the Holy Spirit. So to be born again, you must receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.

We read in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”

Many people are claiming to be born again. You may say, “How can I tell if I am really a child of God?”

In II Corinthians 5:17, it says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

To be born once is to die twice, but to be born twice is to die but once.
