What Must I do to be Born Again?

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. {Romans 10:9}

To be saved simply means to acknowledge Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour, to accept him wholeheartedly, allowing him to rule and reign over your life forever without looking back.

Being saved is not by the works of your hands neither is it the words of your mouth, but by the grace of God. Doing good does not mean that you are saved, you might be doing well but if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, you are not yet saved.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast. {Ephesians 2:8-9}

Salvation is not by going to church regularly. You might be going to church and yet not saved. For you to be saved, you must accept Jesus as your person and forsake your sins.

Many a times, I have heard that once saved is forever saved. Beloveth, once saved is not forever saved and can never be forever saved. To be saved forever is to follow Jesus to the end and never look back to the world again.

Here are 7 steps to take for you to be saved

  1. You must first confess all your sin to Jesus. 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. {Romans 10:9} The first thing to do is to confess your sin Jesus Christ.
  2. You must surrender to Jesus Christ and accept him as your Saviour. After confessing your sins to him, you now dedicate your life to him by surrendering to him totally.
  3. You must forsake all your sins. After when you have confess and surrender your life to Jesus, Another step is to forsake all your sins. You must make up your mind never to go back to your vomit again.
  4. Water baptism. You must be baptized by immersion.
  5. Kill the flesh. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. {Galatians 5:19-21}
  6. Activate the fruits of the spirit. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. {Galatians 5:22-23}
  7. Holy Spirit. You can never have the fruits of the spirit if you are not filled with the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that will help you kill the works of the flesh. And this can only happen if you have totally surrendered to Jesus Christ and forsaken all your sins.

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. {Act 2:37-38}

If you want to surrender your life to Jesus Christ now, simply pray this prayer with faith and say Lord Jesus, i know I’m a sinner, i surrender all to you, i dedicate my life to you, i believe that you died for my sin and i confess with my mouth that you are the son of God, come in to my life now and be my savior, i will no longer live a life of sin again,from now on i will live to please you, please wash away my sins with your precious blood, give me a new life and a new beginning. Thank you for saving me i ‘m no longer a sinner, i ‘m now born again, in Jesus name Amen.

If just you prayed that prayer now, CONGRATULATIONS! You are now born again. I welcome you to the new life in Christ. What next now that you are saved?
