What is your Spiritual Birthday?
What Is Your Spiritual Birthday?
In reply Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” John 3:3
When were you born again?
There are a lot of people who believe in Jesus Christ. There are a lot of people who go to Church, tithe and read their Bible, yet they have never been born again. They have never given over and surrendered their will to the Lord Jesus Christ. They have not made Jesus Christ Lord and King of their lives. They themselves remain king and lord of their own lives. They believe they are in control of their own destiny.
We are born going the wrong direction as sinners, going the direction of hell. Have you changed directions? When did you become born again and change directions?
Matthew 7 13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
You know your birth date, but do you know your Spiritual birthday? The Big Question is when did you become born again?
When did you surrender control of your life to Jesus Christ and receive HIS Gift, pardon, redemption, reconciliation and forgiveness of sin? When did your transformed life begin?
Galatians 5:19-2 details the direction in which we are headed without a Spiritual Birth Date. “Now the doings (practices) of the flesh are clear (obvious): they are immorality, impurity, indecency, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions (dissensions), party spirit (factions, sects with peculiar opinions, heresies), envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
Being born again is a changed life. The seed is the Word of God. It is not until the Word of God radically changes your direction that you have been born again. The transformed, changed life bears fruit. Here is the new direction of the person with a Spiritual Birth Date. In Galatians 5 you have a new direction: “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1 John 5
